On the Higher Poisson Structures of the Camassa–Holm Hierarchy

  • Giovanni Ortenzi
  • Marco Pedroni
  • Vladimir Rubtsov


We find a generating series for the higher Poisson structures of the nonlocal Camassa–Holm hierarchy, following the method used by Enriques, Orlov, and third author for the KdV case.
