Cluster Toda Chains and Nekrasov Functions
This is a lecture note based on the series of lectures on the dispersionless integrable hierarchies delivered by the authore in June, 2013, at the Rikkyo University, Tokyo, Japan. The contents are survey on dispersionless integrable hierarchies, including introduction to integrable systems in general, and on their connections with complex analysis.
We discuss the Poisson structures on Lie groups and propose an explicit construction of the integrable models on their appropriate Poisson submanifolds. The integrals of motion for the SL(N)-series are computed in cluster variables via the Lax map. This construction, when generalised to the co-extended loop groups, gives rise not only to alternative descriptions of relativistic Toda systems, but allows to formulate in general terms some new class of the integrable models. We discuss the subtleties of this Lax map related to the ambiguity in projection to the trivial co-extension and propose a way to write the spectral curve equation, which fixes this ambiguity, both for the Toda chains and their generalisations.
