Abstract:
In a recent work, we proposed the coupled Painlevé VI system with A_{2n+1}^{(1)}-symmetry, which is a higher order generalization of the sixth Painlevé equation (P_{VI}). In this article, we present its particular solution expressed in terms of the hypergeometric function {}_{n+1}F_n. We also discuss a degeneration structure of the Painlevé system derived from the confluence of {}_{n+1}F_n.

Abstract:
We show that the Garnier system in n-variables has affine Weyl group symmetry of type $B^{(1)}_{n+3}$. We also formulate the $\tau$ functions for the Garnier system (or the Schlesinger system of rank 2) on the root lattice $Q(C_{n+3})$ and show that they satisfy Toda equations, Hirota-Miwa equations and bilinear differential equations.

Abstract:
In a recent work, we proposed the coupled Painlev\'e VI system with $A^{(1)}_{2n+1}$-symmetry, which is a higher order generalization of the sixth Painlev\'e equation ($P_{\rm VI}$). In this article, we present its particular solution expressed in terms of the hypergeometric function ${}_{n+1}F_n$. We also discuss a degeneration structure of the Painlev\'e system derived from the confluence of ${}_{n+1}F_n$.

Abstract:
In this article, we propose a class of six-dimensional Painleve systems given as the monodromy preserving deformations of the Fuchsian systems. They are expressed as polynomial Hamiltonian systems of sixth order. We also discuss their particular solutions in terms of the hypergeometric functions defined by fourth order rigid systems.

Abstract:
A relationship between Painleve systems and infinite-dimensional integrable hierarchies is studied. We derive a class of higher order Painleve systems from Drinfeld-Sokolov (DS) hierarchies of type A by similarity reductions. This result allows us to understand some properties of Painleve systems, Hamiltonian structures, Lax pairs and affine Weyl group symmetries.

Abstract:
In this article, we propose a q-analogue of the Drinfeld-Sokolov hierarchy of type A. We also discuss its relationship with the q-Painleve VI equation and the q-hypergeometric function.

Abstract:
We study the degenerate Garnier system which generalizes the fifth Painlev\'{e} equation. We present two classes of particular solutions, classical transcendental and algebraic ones. Their coalescence structure is also investigated.

Abstract:
We present an new system of ordinary differential equations with affine Weyl group symmetry of type E_6^{(1)}. This system is expressed as a Hamiltonian system of sixth order with a coupled Painleve VI Hamiltonian.

Abstract:
A higher order Painleve system of type D^{(1)}_{2n+2} was introduced by Y. Sasano. It is an extension of the sixth Painleve equation for the affine Weyl group symmetry. It is also expressed as a Hamiltonian system of order 2n with a coupled Painleve VI Hamiltonian. In this paper, we discuss a derivation of this system from a Drinfeld-Sokolov hierarchy.

Abstract:
We study the Drinfeld-Sokolov hierarchies of type A_n^{(1)} associated with the regular conjugacy classes of W(A_n). A class of fourth order Painleve systems is derived from them by similarity reductions.
