Synopsis

KdV and KAM by Thomas (University of Zurich, Switzerland) Kappeler, Jurgen Poschel

This text treats the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation with periodic boundary conditions. This equation models waves in homogeneous, weakly nonlinear and weakly dispersive media in general. For the first time, these important results are comprehensively covered in book form, authored by internationally renowned experts in the field.

Reviews

From the reviews: The monograph is concerned with a natural question that arises once a partial differential equation ... is understood as an infinite dimensional completely integrable Hamiltonian system. ... The book under review is extremely well written. ... This book should certainly be of interest to anyone working in the areas of finite dimensional Hamiltonian dynamics or completely integrable partial differential equations ... . (A. Pickering, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1032 (7), 2004) The main topic of the present book is the periodic Korteweg de Vries equation ... . It is well written and comes with an introduction to integrable Hamiltonian systems and KAM theory, which makes it self-contained and accessible to graduate students as well. As an additional bonus, all chapters can be read independently of each other. I can only highly recommend it to anybody interested in infinite dimensional integrable systems. (G.Teschl, Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten, Issue 196, 2004) In this elegantly written book, the authors approach two essential facets of the Hamiltonian PDEs theory ... . the results stated in the book ... are exposed in a very clear and pedagogical way and they provide a quite complete picture of the two subjects: 'Kdv

'KAM'. ... the illuminating overview and the introductions of each chapter make these difficult (and technical) subjects accessible to nonspecialists. (Benoit Grebert, Mathematical Reviews, 2004 g) This book deals with the problem of describing the qualitative behaviour of the solutions of the Korteweg de Vries equation (KdV) ... . The book contains full proofs of all the results presented. This is quite a remarkable fact since previously the interested scientist had to look at many different places ... . Furthermore, the proofs presented in the book are original ... . Everything is presented starting from the beginning so that the book turns out to be accessible to a graduate student. (D. Bambusi, Jahresbericht der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, Vol. 108 (3), 2006)'

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
