## The sigma form for the second Painlevé hierarchy

In this paper we study the so-called sigma form of the second Painleve hierarchy. To obtain this form, we use some properties of the Hamiltonian structure of the second Painleve hierarchy and of the Lenard operator.

We examine asymptotic expansions of the third Painlevé transcendents for *αδ ≠* 0 and *γ* = 0 in the neighborhood of infinity in a sector of aperture *<*2*π* by the method of dominant balance). We compare intermediate results with results obtained by methods of three-dimensional power geometry. We find possible asymptotics in terms of elliptic functions, construct a power series, which represents an asymptotic expansion of the solution to the third Painlevé equation in a certain sector, estimate the aperture of this sector, and obtain a recurrent relation for the coefficients of the series.

A model for organizing cargo transportation between two node stations connected by a railway line which contains a certain number of intermediate stations is considered. The movement of cargo is in one direction. Such a situation may occur, for example, if one of the node stations is located in a region which produce raw material for manufacturing industry located in another region, and there is another node station. The organization of freight traﬃc is performed by means of a number of technologies. These technologies determine the rules for taking on cargo at the initial node station, the rules of interaction between neighboring stations, as well as the rule of distribution of cargo to the ﬁnal node stations. The process of cargo transportation is followed by the set rule of control. For such a model, one must determine possible modes of cargo transportation and describe their properties. This model is described by a ﬁnite-dimensional system of diﬀerential equations with nonlocal linear restrictions. The class of the solution satisfying nonlocal linear restrictions is extremely narrow. It results in the need for the “correct” extension of solutions of a system of diﬀerential equations to a class of quasi-solutions having the distinctive feature of gaps in a countable number of points. It was possible numerically using the Runge–Kutta method of the fourth order to build these quasi-solutions and determine their rate of growth. Let us note that in the technical plan the main complexity consisted in obtaining quasi-solutions satisfying the nonlocal linear restrictions. Furthermore, we investigated the dependence of quasi-solutions and, in particular, sizes of gaps (jumps) of solutions on a number of parameters of the model characterizing a rule of control, technologies for transportation of cargo and intensity of giving of cargo on a node station.
