### Nonlinear integrable partial differential equations

Mathematical Physics Seminar

26th January 2024, 1:45 pm – 3:30 pm

Fry Building, 2.04

I will give a brief overview of the area of nonlinear integrable partial differential equations. After highlighting some key historical events, I will discuss mathematical tools developed over the past half century for the solution of such equations. In particular, I will describe how these tools can be used to obtain remarkably precise asymptotic formulas. The theory will be illustrated with the help of two celebrated equations for water waves: the Korteweg–de Vries equation and the Boussinesq equation. Some recent trends and connections to other areas of mathematics will also be mentioned.
