Abstracts

 

Harry Braden:         Beauville-Mukai, Calogero-Moser and Branes

 

Abstract: Supersymmetric field theory suggests an ansatz for a new class of integrable
systems, generalising the Calogero-Moser model. These systems are constructed from
abelian surfaces and are analogous to those of Beauville-Mukai based on K3 surfaces.
They provide the sought after `Double Elliptic Systems'.

Guido Carlet:           On Toda-type hierarchies

 

Abstract We first describe an extended version of the Toda chain
hierarchy. Later we present the tri-Hamiltonian structure of the
two-dimensional Toda hierarchy.

Liana David:             Compatible metrics and non-local bi-Hamiltonian structures

 

Abstract:

Jenya Ferapontov:   Hydrodynamic reductions of multi-dimensional dispersionless PDEs: the test for integrability.

 

Abstract  A multi-dimensional quasilinear system is said to be `integrable'
if it can be decoupled in infinitely many ways into a collection of
compatible n-component one-dimensional systems in Riemann
invariants. Exact solutions described by these reductions, known  as
nonlinear interactions of planar simple waves, can be viewed as
natural dispersionless analogs of n-gap solutions. It is
demonstrated that the requirement of the existence of `sufficiently
many' n-component reductions provides the effective classification
criterion.

Johan van de Leur:  The construction of 3-dimensional Frobenius manifolds from various KP hierarchies.

Abstract. Frobenius manifolds in 3 dimensions are characterised by the time dependent
Euler top equations. Using the Grassmannian of the 3-component KP hierarchy we
construct 1-parameter families of rational solutions of this system.
Analysing these solutions, one can show that such solutions already appear in
the 1-component KP hierarchy.

Paolo Lorenzoni:     Deformations of bihamiltonian structures of hydrodynamic type

 

Abstract: We discuss a perturbative approach to the classification problem of a certain class of bihamiltonian 1+1 PDEs depending on a small parameter.
