# Title: Brezin-Gross-Witten tau function and isomonodromic deformations

(Submitted on 5 Dec 2018 (v1), last revised 30 Nov 2019 (this version, v2))

Abstract: The Brezin-Gross-Witten tau function is a tau function of the KdV hierarchy which arises in the weak coupling phase of the Brezin-Gross-Witten model. It falls within the family of generalized Kontsevich matrix integrals, and its algebro--geometric interpretation has been unveiled in recent works of Norbury. We prove that a suitably generalized Brezin-Gross-Witten tau function is the isomonodromic tau function of a $2\times 2$ isomonodromic system and consequently present a study of this tau function purely by means of this isomonodromic interpretation. Within this approach we derive effective formul\ae\ for the generating functions of the correlators in terms of simple generating series, the Virasoro constraints, and discuss the relation with the Painlev\'{e} XXXIV hierarchy.
