\(W\)-algebras in CKP and BKP hierarchies

PHY 108

Abstract

This talk aims to construct additional symmetries associated with the constrained CKP and BKP hierarchies, and further to give the action of the symmetry flows on the eigenfunction and adjoint eigenfunction. We further show that their acting on the space of the wave operator, \(\partial_k^*\) forms two centerless algebras \(W^{cC}_{1+\infty}\) and \(W^{cB}_{1+\infty}\)-subalgebra of centerless \(W_{1+\infty}\), respectively.

Multi-wave solutions for nonlinear equations by the multiple exp-function method
Wen-Xiu Ma
9:30am-10:30am
NES 104

Abstract

A multiple exp-function method is proposed for constructing multi-wave solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations. The method is oriented towards ease of use and capability of computer algebra systems, and provides a direct and systematical solution procedure. Using Maple, an application of the approach is made to the \(3+1\) dimensional potential-Yu-Toda-Sasa-Fukuyama equation, and so, exact \(1\)-wave, \(2\)-wave and \(3\)-wave solutions are generated, along with \(1\)-soliton, \(2\)-soliton and \(3\)-soliton type solutions.

Wronski-type and Gramm-type Pfaffian solutions to the coupled KP equation, Part II

NES 104

Abstract

Pfaffian techniques are used to present Pfaffian structure of the coupled KP equation. The resulting Pfaffian formulation yields two kinds of Pfaffian solutions to the coupled KP equation. Such a solution process leads to Pfaffianization of the KP equation.

Abstract

Using Pfaffian techniques, we discuss the common structure of soliton equations and show how fundamental soliton equations, such as the KP, BKP, coupled KP, Toda lattice and Toda molecule equations, resolve themselves into Pfaffian identities.

Abstract

We discuss a few fundamental Pfaffian identities in soliton theory. These include expansion formulae, addition formulae and derivative formulae for Pfaffians. The computation using Pfaffians is much simpler than using determinants in generating soliton solutions to Hirota bilinear equations.
