The ocean murmuring nigh;
She throws the hook, and watches;
The fishes pass it by.

To pruning-hooks their spears.

In science:

For the sake of simplicity a T-shaped fat hook with corner point coordinates (K ′ , −M ′ ) and (K, M ) is denoted by (K ′ , M ′ ) ⊙ (K, M ) and will be referred as T-shaped fat hook of type (K ′ , M ′ ) ⊙ (K, M ).
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
Our choice for the boundary conditions of a T-shaped fat hook of type (K ′ , M ′ ) ⊙ (K, M ) will be specified in the next section.
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
This analysis can be done to all boundary lines of the T-shaped fat-hook and finally one gets that the boundary values of T (a, s, u) along the horizontal (vertical) boundaries are products of two functions, one depending only on u − s , (u − a) and the other depending only on u + s , (u + a).
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
The hierarchy of Hirota equations consists of Hirota equations defined on T-shaped fat hooks with different corner point coordinates.
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
The hooks differ by 1. existence of such a hierarchy follows from the classical integrability of the Hirota equations.
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
In the g l(K ) case the domain of non-zero T (a, s, u) is a semi-infinite strip of height K , while in case of g l(K |M ) super algebras this domain is a fat-hook with corner point coordinates (K, M ) .
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
However it can be shown that F can not be defined on the same T-shaped fat-hook as T .
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
Careful analysis of the boundary conditions for F compatible with (8) says that F must be defined either on a T-shaped fat-hook of type (K ′ , M ′ ) ⊙ (K − 1, M ) or on a T-shaped fat-hook of type (K ′ , M ′ ) ⊙ (K, M + 1).
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
The function F ∗(a, s, u) is defined on a T-shaped fat-hook of type (K ′ , M ′ )⊙(K, M − 1).
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
With the help of the (BT1) and (BT2) B¨acklund transformations one can decrease the size of the T-shaped fat-hook on its right hand side by 1 unit in either vertical or horizontal direction.
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
In order that the T-shaped fat-hook can be reduced to a trivial domain one needs another set of B¨acklund transformations which decrease the size of the Tshaped fat-hook on its left hand side.
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
They correspond to T-shaped fat hooks of type (K ′ − 1, M ′ ) ⊙ (K, M ) or (K ′ , M ′ + 1) ⊙ (K, M ).
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
The function F ∗(a, s, u) is defined on a T-shaped fat-hook of type (K ′ , M ′ − 1) ⊙ (K, M ).
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
T-shaped fat-hook on its left hand side by 1 unit in either vertical or horizontal direction.
Discrete Hirota dynamics for AdS/CFT
First of all we introduce the notation T k ′ ,m′ k ,m (a, s, u) for T-functions, which solve the Hirota equations defined on a T-shaped fat-hook of type (k ′ , m′ ) ⊙ (k , m).
