The Solution of Completely Integrable Systems in the Continuum Limit of the Spectral Data
In this talk I wish to outline a procedure for studying the solution of completely integrable evolution equations in a distinguished limit. The procedure is applicable to equations which can be solved by the method of the inverse spectral transformation and have discrete spectral data. The distinguished limit corresponds to the above data tending to a continuum.
