  • F. V. Andreev

Compositions of rational transformations of independent variables of linear matrix ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with the Schlesinger transformations (RS-transformations) are used to construct algebraic solutions of the sixth Painlevé equation. RS-Transformations of the ranks 3 and 4 of 2 × 2 matrix Fuchsian ODEs with 3 singular points into analogous ODE with 4 singular points are classified.
