[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The analytic solution of Teukolsky equation in Kerr-de Sitter and Kerr-Newman-de Sitter geometries is presented and the properties of the solution are examined. In particular, we show that our solution satisfies the Teukolsky-Starobinsky identities explicitly and fix the relative normalization between solutions with the spin weight $s$ and $-s$.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We construct a bi-linear form on the periods of Calabi-Yau spaces. These are
used to obtain the prepotentials around conifold singularities in type-II
strings compactified on Calabi-Yau space. The explicit construction of the
bi-linear forms is achieved for the one-moduli models as well as two moduli
models with K3-fibrations where the enhanced gauge symmetry is known to be
observed at conifold locus. We also show how these bi-linear forms are related
with the existence of flat coordinates. We list the resulting prepotentials in
two moduli models around the conifold locus, which contains alpha' corrections
of 4-D N=2 SUSY SU(2) Yang-Mills theory as the stringy effect.
[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: It is well known that the perturbation equations of massless fields for the Kerr-de Sitter geometry can be written in the form of separable equations. The equations have five definite singularities, so it has been thought that their analysis would be difficult. We show that these equations can be transformed into Heun's equations, for which we are able to use a known technique to analyze solutions. We reproduce known results for the Kerr geometry and de Sitter geometry in the confluent limits of Heun's functions. Our analysis can be extended to Kerr-Newman-de Sitter geometry for massless fields with spin 0 and 1/2.
[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: In SU(2) Seiberg-Witten theory, it is known that the dual pair of fields are expressed by hypergeometric functions. As for the theory with SU(3) gauge symmetry without matters, it was shown that the dual pairs of fields can be expressed by means of the Appell function of type F_4. These expressions are convenient for analyzing analytic properties of fields. We investigate the relation between Seiberg-Witten theory of rank two gauge group without matters and hypergeometric series of two variables. It is shown that the relation between gauge theories and Appell functions can be observed for other classical gauge groups of rank two. For B_2 and C_2, the fields are written in terms of Appell functions of type H_5. For D_2, we can express fields by Appell functions of type F_4 which can be decomposed to two hypergeometric functions, corresponding to the fact SO(4)\sim SU(2)\times SU(2). We also consider the integrable curve of type C_2 and show how the fields are expressed by Appell functions. However in the case of exceptional group G_2, our examination shows that they can be represented by hypergeometric series which does not correspond to the Appell functions.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The conifold singularities in the type II string are considered as the points of phase transition. In some cases, these singularities can be understood, in the framework of the conventional field theories, as the points of enhanced gauge symmetry. We consider a class of three-modulus type II strings. It is shown the periods can be written in the form of hypergeometric series around the singular points in these models. The leading expansion around the conifold locus turns out to be described by Appell functions. In one singular point, we observe the enhanced gauge symmetry of SU(2) × SU(2) independent of the models. Around another conifold locus, however, the resulting expression of the Appell functions depends on the models. We examine the result by considering a relation between these Appell functions and underlying Riemann surfaces.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We show how to give the expression for periods, Higgs field and its dual of N=2 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory around the conformal point. This is achieved by evaluating the integral representation in the weak coupling region, and by using analytic continuation to the conformal point. The explicit representation is shown for the SU(2) theory with matter fields and also for pure SU(N) and pure SO(2N) theory around the conformal point where the relation to the beta function of the theory is clarified. We also discuss a relation between the fixed points in the SU(2) theories with matter fields and the Landau-Ginzburg point of 2-D N=2 SCFT. Comment: 25 pages, LaTeX
[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We derive a simple formula for the periods associated with the low energy effective action of $N=2$ supersymmetric $SU(2)$ Yang-Mills theory with massive $N_f\le 3$ hypermultiplets. This is given by evaluating explicitly the integral associated to the elliptic curve using various identities of hypergeometric functions. Following this formalism, we can calculate the prepotential with massive hypermultiplets both in the weak coupling region and in the strong coupling region. In particular, we show how the Higgs field and its dual field are expressed as generalized hypergeometric functions when the theory has a conformal point. Comment: 21 pages, LaTeX
[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: We show how to obtain the explicite form of the low energy quantum effective action for $N=2$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in the weak coupling region from the underlying hyperelliptic Riemann surface. This is achieved by evaluating the integral representation of the fields explicitly. We calculate the leading instanton corrections for the group $SU(\nc), SO(N)$ and $SP(2N)$ and find that the one-instanton contribution of the prepotentials for the these group coincide with the one obtained recently by using the direct instanton caluculation.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Analytic solutions of the Regge-Wheeler equation are presented in the form of series of hypergeometric functions and Coulomb wave functions which have different regions of convergence. Relations between these solutions are established. The series solutions are given as the Post-Minkowskian expansion with respect to a parameter $\epsilon \equiv 2M\omega$, $M$ being the mass of black hole. This expansion corresponds to the post-Newtonian expansion when they are applied to the gravitational radiation from a particle in circular orbit around a black hole. These solutions can also be useful for numerical computations. Comment: 22 pages

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: It is known that the radial equation of the massless fields with spin around Kerr black holes cannot be solved by special functions. Recently, the analytic solution was obtained by use of the expansion in terms of the special functions and various astrophysical application have been discussed. It was pointed out that the coefficients of the expansion by the confluent hypergeometric functions are identical to those of the expansion by the hypergeometric functions. We explain the reason of this fact by using the integral equations of the radial equation. It is shown that the kernel of the equation can be written by the product of confluent hypergeometric functions. The integral equaton transforms the expansion in terms of the confluent hypergeometric functions to that of the hypergeometric functions and vice versa,which explains the reason why the expansion coefficients are universal.

[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Analytic solutions of the Teukolsky equation in Kerr geometries are presented in the form of series of hypergeometric functions and Coulomb wave functions. Relations between these solutions are established. The solutions provide a very powerful method not only for examining the general properties of solutions and physical quantities when they are applied to, but also for numerical computations. The solutions are given in the expansion of a small parameter $\epsilon \equiv 2M\omega$, $M$ being the mass of black hole, which corresponds to Post-Minkowski expansion by $G$ and to post-Newtonian expansion when they are applied to the gravitational radiation from a particle in circular orbit around a black hole. It is expected that these solutions will become a powerful weapon to construct the theoretical template towards LIGO and VIRGO projects. Comment: 24 pages, minor modifications
