Title: Non-commutative birational maps satisfying Zamolodchikov's tetrahedron equation from projective geometry over division rings
Abstract: The notion of multidimensional consistency is an important ingredient of the contemporary theory of integrable systems. In my talk I will focus on geometric origin of the multidimensional consistency of Hirota's discrete KP equation. Because the relevant geometric theorem is valid in projective geometries over division rings, we are led to non-commutative version of the equation, which is due to Nimmo. I will show how four-dimensional consistency of the discrete KP system gives the corresponding solution to Zamolodchikov's tetrahedron equation (generalization of the Yang-Baxter equation to more dimensions). In particular, different algebraic descriptions of the same geometric theorem lead to different (but of course equivalent) solutions of the equation. Finally, I will discuss how natural ultra-locality condition imposed on the solution gives Weyl commutation relations. The talk is based on joint works with Sergey Sergeev and Rinat Kashaev.
