FSI3150 Integrabla icke-linjära system och solitoner, 7,5 högskolepoäng (hp)
(Integrable Non-Linear Systems and Solitons)


Soliton equations: what are they, where do they arise. What is special about these equations: Symmetries, conservations laws, Lax pairs. KdV equation: physical background, applications, how to solve it. Inverse scattering method. Other soliton equations. Hirota's method.


This course gives a self-contained introduction to soliton equations. After the course one should have aquired an active knowledge of the course material (i.e. know about and be able to apply and generalize it) and be able to read research papers on the subject.
