Drinfeld–Sokolov hierarchies, tau functions, and generalized Schur polynomials

Abstract : For a simple Lie algebra g and an irreducible faithful representation π of g, we introduce the Schur polynomials of (g, π)-type. We then derive the Sato–Zhou type formula for tau functions of the Drinfeld–Sokolov (DS) hierarchy of g-type. Namely, we show that the tau functions are linear combinations of the Schur polynomials of (g, π)-type with the coefficients being the Plücker coordinates. As an application, we provide a way of computing polynomial tau functions for the DS hierarchy. For g of low rank, we give several examples of polynomial tau functions, and use them to detect bilinear equations for the DS hierarchy.
