LMS Introduction to Integrability Lecture Series

This is a lecture course of 5 lectures which gives samples of main types of integrable systems together with techniques for dealing with them. Classical and quantum, continuous and discrete integrable systems and equations will be discussed. Conserved quantities, Lax pairs and commuting flows will be emphasized throughout.

Thursdays 3:30pm to 4:30pm for five weeks starting on 22 October 2020.

Please note the first lecture is on British Summer Time, the subsequent four lectures are on Greenwich Mean Time.

Please register with the ICMS here, to receive future announcements and the zoom link. 

Call details will be sent out 30mins before the start of the seminar

This event is kindly funded by the London Mathematical Society.
