The theory of soliton equations and integrable systems has developed rapidly over the past 20 years with applications in both mechanics and physics. A flood of papers followed a work by Gardner, Green, Kruskal and Mizura about the Korteweg-de Vries equation (KdV) which had seemend to be merely and unassuming equation of mathematical physics describing waves in shallow water.


Integrable systems generated by linear differential nth order operators; Hamiltonian structures; Hamiltonian structures of the KdV-hierarchies; the Kupershmidt-Wilson theorem; the KP-hierarchy; Hamiltonian structure of the KP-hierarchy; Baker function, tau-function; Grassmannian, tau-function and Baker function after Segal and Wilson. Algebraic-geometrical Krichever's solutions; matrix first-order operators; KdV-hierarchies as reductions of matrix hierarchies; stationary equations; stationary equations of the KdV-hierarchy in the narrow sense (n=2); stationary equations of the matrix hierarchy; stationary equations of the KdV-hierarchies; matrix differential operators polynomially depending on a parameter; multi-time Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism; further examples and applications.
