Generalized hypergeometric systems and the fifth and sixth Painlev´e equations

Authors: Galina Filipuk
Keywords: Reduction problems, Painlev´e equations, B¨acklund transformations


This paper concerns (generalized) hypergeometric systems associated with the fifth and sixth Painlev´e equations, which are the second order nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The Painlev´e equations govern monodromy preserving deformations of certain second order linear scalar equations. We reduce these scalar equations to generalized hypergeometric systems.
