    Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society
    Volume: 1351998; 79 pp
    MSC: Primary 39; 35;

    In this work, the authors provide a self-contained discussion of all real-valued quasi-periodic finite-gap solutions of the Toda and Kac-van Moerbeke hierarchies of completely integrable evolution equations. The approach utilizes algebro-geometric methods, factorization techniques for finite difference expressions, as well as Miura-type transformations. Detailed spectral theoretic properties of Lax pairs and theta function representations of the solutions are derived.

    Features:

    • Simple and unified treatment of the topic.
    • Self-contained development.
    • Novel results for the Kac-van Moerbeke hierarchy and its algebro-geometric solutions.
    Readership

    Graduate students, research mathematicians and theoretical physicists working in completely integrable systems.
