BLHW02 - Machine learning toolkits and integrability techniques in gravity

Using a Riemann-Hilbert approach and the canonical Wiener-Hopf factorisation of certain matrix functions called monodromy matrices, one can obtain explicit solutions to the non-linear field equations of some gravitational theories. We address here, for the first time, the underlying question of what happens when a canonical factorisation does not exist and we use the close connection of Wiener-Hopf factorisation with Toeplitz operators to study this question. For the case of rational monodromy matrices, we prove that the non-existence of a canonical factorisation determines a curve in the Weyl coordinates plane where some elements of the metric tend to zero.  In the case of the Kerr black hole, it coincides with the ergosurface.
