Glimpses of Soliton Theory: The Algebra and Geometry of Nonlinear PDEs

Front Cover
American Mathematical Society, 2010 - MATHEMATICS - 304 pages
Assuming only multivariable calculus and linear algebra as prerequisites, this book introduces the reader to the KdV Equation and its multisoliton solutions, elliptic curves and Weierstrass -functions, the algebra of differential operators, Lax Pairs and their use in discovering other soliton equations, wedge products and decomposability, the KP Equation and Sato's theory relating the Bilinear KP Equation to the geometry of Grassmannians.
