Abstract

The paper contains a complete presentation of the ideas and results of the approach of soliton surfaces (manifolds). In this approach any n-dim. soliton system with a matrix real semi-simple Lie algebra g possesses its own geometry of n-dim. submanifolds of g. Various applications of this approach are discussed. A particular attention is paid to integrable classical string models.
