B6: Algebraic and analytic aspects of integrable systems
Burban, Kunze
The aim of this project is to study completely integrable dynamical systems in finite and infinite dimensions, using techniques from algebraic geometry, homological algebra, Riemann-Hilbert problems and soliton dynamics. The common feature of all those problems is that algebraic or dynamic information can be derived from the knowledge of certain ‘spectral objects’. More specifically, we shall address the Krichever correspondence for ordinary and partial differential operators, Calogero-Moser systems in dimension two, and, on the partial differential equations side, soliton and breather asymptotics for the cubic non-linear Schrödinger equation, which can also include a δ-potential on the right-hand side (destroying the complete integrability)
