Title:  Integrable systems, solitons and the inverse scattering transform

Abstract: The study of physical phenomena by means of mathematical models often leads to a certain class of nonlinear differential equations referred to as integrable systems. Over the last fifty years, the study of these equations has attracted considerable interest because it offers a unique blend of interesting mathematics and concrete physical applications. Understanding the properties of these equations, their solutions and their surprisingly rich mathematical structure often requires a combination of techniques from different branches of mathematics.  After a brief introduction to the subject, I will review some of my main results in this field.  Specifically, I will discuss the following kinds of problems: (i) development of the inverse scattering transform (IST) for scalar, vector and matrix nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) systems with non-zero boundary conditions; (ii) soliton interactions in coupled NLS systems; (iii) development of the IST for integrable systems in two spatial and one temporal dimension.
