Tri-linear equations and their resonant solutions by Bell polynomials
Yuan Zhou
1:00pm-2:00pm
EDU 257

Abstract

We shall talk about a class of tri-linear differential operators described by triple Bell polynomials. The superposition principle will be applied to the construction of resonant solutions of exponential waves for the tri-linear equations. A few illustrative examples will be presented.

Abstract

A non-semisimple matrix loop algebra is presented, and a class of zero curvature equations over this loop algebra is used to generate bi-integrable couplings. An illustrative example is made for the Dirac soliton hierarchy.

A spectral problem from \(\mathrm{so}(3,R)\) and its associated soliton hierarchy
Morgan Mcanally
1:00pm-2:00pm
EDU 257

Abstract

I will talk about a hierarchy of soliton equations from the zero curvature equations associated with the real Lie algebra \(\mathrm{so}(3,R)\). In particular, I will show you using Maple how to generate the hierarchy of soliton equations and that the resulting infinitely many vector fields commute.

Darboux transformations for a twisted derivation and its applications to several classical integrable systems
Dr. Chunxia Li
Capital Normal University
Beijing, PR China
1:00pm-2:00pm
EDU 257

Abstract

In my talk, I will first introduce a twisted derivation and then construct its general Darboux transformations. Based on the general Darboux transformation, we're able to derive Darboux transformations for the KP equation, \((2+1)\)-dimensional Toda lattice equation, fully discrete KP equation, super KdV equation and \(q\)-deformed Toda lattice equation. By iteration of their Darboux transformations, we are able to recover determinant solutions to the above-mentioned soliton equations and obtain quasideterminant solutions to their noncommutative analogues.
