Synopsis

KdV & 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)'

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
