    Good question! I'd also be interested in the nuances between them.

    Edit: Lol, oops, I meant to add this as a comment. Please disregard this post. ;)

    一定、definite 肯定sure、和确定make sure

    i believe you 一定 可以solve this problem
    i believe you 肯定 可以solve this problem
    so there is no difference between 一定 and 肯定
    but 肯定 also has another meaning,"approve"
    for example, 他对你的钢琴水平表示肯定

    确定 is make sure
