Cubic and Quartic Transformations of the Sixth Painlevé Equation in Terms of Riemann–Hilbert Correspondence
The starting point of this paper is a classification of quadratic polynomial transformations of the monodromy manifold for the 2 × 2 isomonodromic Fuchsian systems associated to the Painlevé VI equation. Up to birational automorphisms of the monodromy manifold, we find three transformations. Two of them are identified as the action of known quadratic or quartic transformations of the Painlevé VI equation. The third transformation of the monodromy manifold gives a new transformation of degree 3 of Picard’s solutions of Painlevé VI.
