Completely integrable theories as theories of spontaneous breakdown

  • B. G. Konopelchenko


It is shown that the field theory described by a completely integrable equation (in particular, the theory of any free field) is the theory of spontaneous breakdown of symmetry under certain infinite dynamical group, the corresponding field being the Goldstone field by which this breakdown is accompanied.
