Book description

Created as a celebration of mathematical pioneer Emma Previato, this comprehensive book highlights the connections between algebraic geometry and integrable systems, differential equations, mathematical physics, and many other areas. The authors, many of whom have been at the forefront of research into these topics for the last decades, have all been influenced by Previato's research, as her collaborators, students, or colleagues. The diverse articles in the book demonstrate the wide scope of Previato's work and the inclusion of several survey and introductory articles makes the text accessible to graduate students and non-experts, as well as researchers. This first volume covers a wide range of areas related to integrable systems, often emphasizing the deep connections with algebraic geometry. Common themes include theta functions and Abelian varieties, Lax equations, integrable hierarchies, Hamiltonian flows and difference operators. These powerful tools are applied to spinning top, Hitchin, Painleve and many other notable special equations.


‘I compliment the authors for the fact that the articles are all well-written and very interesting. However, the consistent high-quality throughout the collection suggests that the editors and the researcher to whom it is dedicated also deserve to share some of the credit. This two volume set captures a fascinating snapshot of the current state of this (literally) dynamic area of algebraic geometry research. It is highly recommended as a reference and an inspiration for anyone interested in this subject.’

‘This is a book that will mainly be of interest to people who are at least aware of Emma Prevatio. It gives a good indication of the many areas of mathematics influenced by her work. It is clearly aimed more at working mathematicians or post-graduate students.’
