Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 120)

Abstract

This is a terse survey of some recent results. Except for the last item, it is meant to serve rather as a guide to the literature (where more detailed treatments can be found) than as a complete self-contained presentation.

Keywords

Cauchy Problem Evolution Equation Nonlinear Evolution Equation Bijective Correspondence Inverse Spectral Problem 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
