Solutions to WDVV from generalized Drinfeld-Sokolov hierarchies
It remains to do some less elegant but elementary work: We still need to expand the three sums appearing under the modulus on the l.h.s. up to quadratic order in α, estimate the remainder terms and verify that they can be estimated in terms of the norms we have 2 µ (Xr (α))2 . introduced.
