An infinite-dimensional Frobenius manifold structure on the space of simple analytic curves in the complex plane

The notion of Frobenius manifold was introduced by B. Dubrovin as a geometric formulation of WDVV equations from two-dimensional topological field theory and proved important, in particular, in the study of integrable hierarchies of PDEs with one spatial dimension. In this talk we introduce a structure of infinite-dimensional Frobenius manifold on a subspace in the space of pairs of functions analytic in the inner/outer regions of the unit circle in the complex plane with simple poles at 0/infinity respectively, which is related to integrable hierarchies with two spatial variables. From a joint work with B. Dubrovin and L. Ph. Mertens.
