Abstract

In the context of $q$-Painlev\'e VI with generic parameter values, the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence induces a one-to-one mapping between solutions of the nonlinear equation and points on an affine Segre surface. Upon fixing a generic point on the surface, we give formulae for the function values of the corresponding solution near the critical points, in the form of complete, convergent, asymptotic expansions. These lead in particular to the solution of the nonlinear connection problem for the general solution of $q$-Painlev\'e VI. We further show that, when the point on the Segre surface is moved to one of the sixteen lines on the surface, one of the asymptotic expansions near the critical points truncates, under suitable parameter assumptions. At intersection points of lines, this then yields doubly truncated asymptotics at one of the critical points or simultaneous truncation at both.
