In recent work it was shown how recursive factorisation of certain QRT maps leads to Somos-4 and Somos-5 recurrences with periodic coefficients, and to a fifth-order recurrence with the Laurent property. Here we recursively factorise the 12-parameter symmetric QRT map, given by a second-order recurrence for a dependent variable $u_n$, to obtain a system of three coupled recurrences which possesses the Laurent property. As degenerate special cases, we derive systems of two coupled recurrences corresponding to the 5-parameter additive and multiplicative symmetric QRT maps. Read More

A novel third order nonlinear evolution equation is introduced. It is connected, via Baecklund transformations, with the Korteweg-deVries (KdV), modified Korteweg-deVries (mKdV) equation and other third order nonlinear evolution equations. Hence, it is termed KdV-type equation. Read More

We present a novel approximation method which can predict the number of solitons asymptotically appearing under arbitrary rapidly decreasing initial conditions. The number of solitons can be estimated without integration of original soliton equations. As an example, we take the one-dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger equation and estimate the behaviors of scattering amplitude in detail. Read More

Integrable deformations of the hyperbolic and trigonometric ${\mathrm{BC}}_n$ Sutherland models were recently derived via Hamiltonian reduction of certain free systems on the Heisenberg doubles of ${\mathrm{SU}}(n,n)$ and ${\mathrm{SU}}(2n)$, respectively. As a step towards constructing action-angle variables for these models, we here apply the same reduction to a different free system on the double of ${\mathrm{SU}}(2n)$ and thereby obtain a novel integrable many-body model of Ruijsenaars--Schneider--van Diejen type that is in action-angle duality with the respective deformed Sutherland model.

We consider the population of critical points generated from the critical point of the master function with no variables, which is associated with the trivial representation of the twisted affine Lie algebra $A^{(2)}_{2n}$. The population is naturally partitioned into an infinite collection of complex cells $\mathbb{C}^m$, where $m$ are some positive integers. For each cell we define an injective rational map $\mathbb{C}^m \to M(A^{(2)}_{2n})$ of the cell to the space $M(A^{(2)}_{2n})$ of Miura opers of type $A^{(2)}_{2n}$. Read More

The classes of electrovacuum Einstein - Maxwell fields (with a cosmological constant), which metrics admit an Abelian two-dimensional isometry group $\mathcal{G}_2$ with non-null orbits and electromagnetic fields possess the same symmetry, are considered. For these fields we describe the structures of so called "nondynamical degrees of freedom" which presence as well as the presence of a cosmological constant change (in a strikingly similar ways) the dynamical equations and destroy their known integrable structures. Modifications of the known reduced forms of Einstein - Maxwell equations -- the Ernst equations and self-dual Kinnersley equations in the presence of non-dynamical degrees of freedom are found and subclasses of fields with non-dynamical degrees of freedom are considered for : (I) vacuum metrics with cosmological constant, (II) vacuum space-times with isometry groups $\mathcal{G}_2$ which orbits do not admit the orthogonal 2-surfaces (none-orthogonally-transitive isometry groups) and (III) electrovacuum fields with more general structures of electromagnetic fields than in the known integrable cases.

We show how solutions to a large class of Riccati evolutionary nonlinear partial differential equations can be generated from the corresponding linearized equations. The key is an integral equation analogous to the Marchenko equation, or more generally dressing transformation, in integrable systems. We show explicitly how this can be achieved for scalar partial differential equations with nonlocal quadratic nonlinearities. Read More

A method for constructing the Lax pairs for nonlinear integrable models is suggested. First we look for a nonlinear invariant manifold to the linearization of the given equation. Examples show that such invariant manifold does exist and can effectively be found. Read More

We analyze the left-tail asymptotics of deformed Tracy-Widom distribution functions describing the fluctuations of the largest eigenvalue in invariant random matrix ensembles after removing each soft edge eigenvalue independently with probability $1-\gamma\in[0,1]$. As $\gamma$ varies, a transition from Tracy-Widom statistics ($\gamma=1$) to classical Weibull statistics ($\gamma=0$) was observed in the physics literature by Bohigas, de Carvalho, and Pato \cite{BohigasCP:2009}. We provide a description of this transition by rigorously computing the leading-order left-tail asymptotics of the thinned GOE, GUE and GSE Tracy-Widom distributions. Read More

We start with a Riemann-Hilbert problem (RHP) related to a BD.I-type symmetric spaces $SO(2r+1)/S(O(2r-2s +1)\otimes O(2s))$, $s\geq 1$. We consider two Riemann-Hilbert problems: the first formulated on the real axis $\mathbb{R}$ in the complex $\lambda$-plane; the second one is formulated on $\mathbb{R} \oplus i\mathbb{R}$. Read More

We present nonlocal integrable reductions of the Fordy-Kulish system of nonlinear Schrodinger equations and the Fordy system of derivative nonlinear Schrodinger equations on Hermitian symmetric spaces. Examples are given on the symmetric space $\frac{SU(4)}{SU(2) \times SU(2)}$. Read More

The hyperelliptic curve cryptography is based on the arithmetic in the Jacobian of a curve. In classical mechanics well-known cryptographic algorithms and protocols can be very useful for construct auto Backlund transformations, discretization of continuous flows and study of integrable systems with higher order integrals of motion. We consider application of a standard generic divisor doubling for construction of new auto Backlund transformations for the Lagrange top and Henon-Heiles system. Read More

The multi-indexed orthogonal polynomials (the Meixner, little $q$-Jacobi (Laguerre), ($q$-)Racah, Wilson, Askey-Wilson types) satisfying second order difference equations were constructed in discrete quantum mechanics. They are polynomials in the sinusoidal coordinates $\eta(x)$ ($x$ is the coordinate of quantum system) and expressed in terms of the Casorati determinants whose matrix elements are functions of $x$ at various points. By using shape invariance properties, we derive various equivalent determinant expressions, especially those whose matrix elements are functions of the same point $x$. Read More

We study the $G$-strand equations that are extensions of the classical chiral model of particle physics in the particular setting of broken symmetries described by symmetric spaces. These equations are simple field theory models whose configuration space is a Lie group, or in this case a symmetric space. In this class of systems, we derive several models that are completely integrable on finite dimensional Lie group $G$ and we treat in more details examples with symmetric space $SU(2)/S^1$ and $SO(4)/SO(3)$. Read More

The Yang-Baxter $\sigma$-model is a systematic way to generate integrable deformations of AdS$_5\times$S$^5$. We recast the deformations as seen by open strings, where the metric is undeformed AdS$_5\times$S$^5$ with constant string coupling, and all information about the deformation is encoded in the noncommutative (NC) parameter $\Theta$. We identify the deformations of AdS$_5$ as twists of the conformal algebra, thus explaining the noncommutativity. Read More

The generating function of cubic Hodge integrals satisfying the local Calabi-Yau condition is conjectured to be a tau function of a new integrable system which can be regarded as a fractional generalization of the Volterra lattice hierarchy, so we name it the fractional Volterra hierarchy. In this paper, we give the definition of this integrable hierarchy in terms of Lax pair and Hamiltonian formalisms, construct its tau functions, and present its multi-soliton solutions. Read More

We investigate the dynamics of the localized nonlinear matter wave in spin-1 Bose-Einstein condensates with trapping potentials and nonlinearities dependent on time and space. We solve the three coupled Gross-Pitaevskii equation by similarity transformation and obtain two families of exact matter wave solutions in terms of Jacobi elliptic functions and Mathieu equation. The localized states of the spinor matter wave describe the dynamics of vector breathing solitons, moving breathing solitons, quasibreathing solitons and resonant solitons. Read More

We derive asymptotic formulas for the solution of the derivative nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation on the half-line under the assumption that the initial and boundary values lie in the Schwartz class. The formulas clearly show the effect of the boundary on the solution. The approach is based on a nonlinear steepest descent analysis of an associated Riemann-Hilbert problem. Read More

Chirality is ubiquitous in nature and chiral objects in condensed matter are often excited states protected by system's topology. The use of chiral topological excitations to carry information has been demonstrated, where the information is robust against external perturbations. For instance, reading, writing, and transfer of binary information are demonstrated with chiral topological excitations in magnetic systems, skyrmions, for spintronic devices. Read More

We propose a conjectural explicit formula of generating series of a new type for Gromov--Witten invariants of $\mathbb{P}^1$ of all degrees in full genera. Read More

We consider a single magnetic impurity described by the spin--anisotropic s-d(f) exchange (Kondo) model and formulate scaling equation for the spin-anisotropic model when the density of states (DOS) of electrons is a power law function of energy (measured relative to the Fermi energy). We solve this equation containing terms up to the second order in coupling constants in terms of elliptic functions. From the obtained solution we find the phases corresponding to the infinite isotropic antiferromagnetic Heisenberg exchange, to the impurity spin decoupled from the electron environment (only for the pseudogap DOS), and to the infinite Ising exchange (only for the diverging DOS). Read More

In the paper we derive rational solutions for the lattice potential modified Korteweg-de Vries equation, and Q2, Q1($\delta$), H3($\delta$), H2 and H1 in the Adler-Bobenko-Suris list. B\"acklund transformations between these lattice equations are used. All these rational solutions are related to a unified $\tau$ function in Casoratian form which obeys a bilinear superposition formula. Read More

In this paper, we study explicit correspondences between the integrable Novikov and Sawada-Kotera hierarchies, and between the Degasperis-Procesi and Kaup-Kupershmidt hierarchies. We show how a pair of Liouville transformations between the isospectral problems of the Novikov and Sawada-Kotera equations, and the isospectral problems of the Degasperis-Procesi and Kaup-Kupershmidt equations relate the corresponding hierarchies, in both positive and negative directions, as well as their associated conservation laws. Combining these results with the Miura transformation relating the Sawada-Kotera and Kaup-Kupershmidt equations, we further construct an implicit relationship which associates the Novikov and Degasperis-Procesi equations. Read More

The soliton solutions of the Camassa-Holm equation are derived by the implementation of the dressing method. The form of the one and two soliton solutions coincides with the form obtained by other methods. Read More

We consider a relativistic charged particle in background electromagnetic fields depending on both space and time. We identify which symmetries of the fields automatically generate integrals (conserved quantities) of the charge motion, accounting fully for relativistic and gauge invariance. Using this we present new examples of superintegrable relativistic systems. Read More

We examine integrable turbulence in the framework of dispersive hydrodynamics by realizing an optical fiber experiment in which the defocusing Kerr nonlinearity strongly dominates linear dispersive effects. In this context, Riemann invariants of the asymptotic nonlinear geometric optics system are shown to represent appropriate observable quantities that provide new insight into the understanding of statistical features of the initial stage of development of integrable turbulence. The real-time observation of Riemann invariants in optics is achieved by combining heterodyne and time-division multiplexing techniques in a fast detection setup. Read More

In this paper, we construct global action-angle variables for a certain two-parameter family of hyperbolic van Diejen systems. Following Ruijsenaars' ideas on the translation invariant models, the proposed action-angle variables come from a thorough analysis of the commutation relation obeyed by the Lax matrix, whereas the proof of their canonicity is based on the study of the scattering theory. As a consequence, we show that the van Diejen system of our interest is self-dual with a factorized scattering map. Read More

We present experimental evidence of the universal emergence of the Peregrine soliton predicted in the semi-classical (zero-dispersion) limit of the focusing nonlinear Schr\"{o}dinger equation [Comm. Pure Appl. Math. Read More

The Li\'enard equation is used in various applications. Therefore, constructing general analytical solutions of this equation is an important problem. Here we study connections between the Li\'enard equation and some equations from the Painlev\'e--Gambier classification. Read More

The problem of construction of ladder operators for rationally extended quantum harmonic oscillator (REQHO) systems of a general form is investigated in the light of existence of different schemes of the Darboux-Crum-Krein-Adler transformations (DCKATs) by which such systems can be generated from the quantum harmonic oscillator. Any REQHO system is characterized by the number of separated states in its spectrum, the number of `valence bands' in which the separated states are organized, and by the total number of the missing energy levels and their position. All these peculiarities of a REQHO system are shown to be detected and reflected by a trinity $(\mathcal{A}^\pm$, $\mathcal{B}^\pm$, $\mathcal{C}^\pm$) of the basic (primary) lowering and raising ladder operators related between themselves by certain algebraic identities with coefficients polynomially-dependent on the Hamiltonian.

An important step in the efficient computation of multi-dimensional theta functions is the construction of appropriate symplectic transformations for a given Riemann matrix assuring a rapid convergence of the theta series. An algorithm is presented to approximately map the Riemann matrix to the Siegel fundamental domain. The shortest vector of the lattice generated by the Riemann matrix is identified exactly, and the algorithm ensures that its length is larger than $\sqrt{3}/2$. Read More

We study special circle bundles over two elementary moduli spaces of meromorphic quadratic differentials with real periods denoted by $\mathcal Q_0^{\mathbb R}(-7)$ and $\mathcal Q^{\mathbb R}_0([-3]^2)$. The space $\mathcal Q_0^{\mathbb R}(-7)$ is the moduli space of meromorphic quadratic differentials on the Riemann sphere with one pole of order 7 with real periods; it appears naturally in the study of a neighbourhood of the Witten's cycle $W_1$ in the combinatorial model based on Jenkins-Strebel quadratic differentials of $\mathcal M_{g,n}$. The space $\mathcal Q^{\mathbb R}_0([-3]^2)$ is the moduli space of meromorphic quadratic differentials on the Riemann sphere with two poles of order at most 3 with real periods; it appears in description of a neighbourhood of Kontsevich's boundary $W_{-1,-1}$ of the combinatorial model.

We present a brief review on integrability of multispecies zero range process in one-dimension introduced recently. The topics range over stochastic $R$ matrices of quantum affine algebra $U_q(A^{(1)}_n)$, matrix product construction of stationary states for periodic systems, $q$-boson representation of Zamolodchikov-Faddeev algebra, etc. We also introduce new commuting Markov transfer matrices having a mixed boundary condition and prove the factorization of a family of $R$ matrices associated with the tetrahedron equation and generalized quantum groups at a special point of the spectral parameter. Read More

Exact bright, dark, antikink solitary waves and Jacobi elliptic function solutions of the generalized Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation with arbitrary power-law nonlinearity will be constructed in this work. The method used to carry out the integration is the F-expansion method. Solutions obtained have fractional and integer negative or positive power-law nonlinearities. Read More

The Ablowitz-Ladik equation is a very important model in the nonlinear mathematical physics. In this paper, the hyperbolic function solitary wave solutions, the trigonometric function periodic wave solutions and the rational wave solutions with more arbitrary parameters of 2-dimensional Ablowitz-Ladik equation are derived by using the GG-expansion method, and the effect of the parameters (including the coupling constant and other parameters) on the linear stability of the exact solutions is analysed and numerically simulated. Read More

We derive a method for finding Lie Symmetries for third-order difference equations. We use these symmetries to reduce the order of the difference equations and hence obtain the solutions of some third-order difference equations. We also introduce a technique for obtaining their first integrals. Read More

We discuss the correspondence between the Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equations associated with $GL(N)$ and the $n$-particle quantum Calogero model in the case when $n$ is not necessarily equal to $N$. This can be viewed as a natural "quantization" of the quantum-classical correspondence between quantum Gaudin and classical Calogero models. Read More

Three (2+1)-dimensional equations, they are KP equation, cylindrical KP equation and spherical KP equation, have been reduced to the same KdV equation by different transformation of variables respectively. Since the single solitary wave solution and 2-solitary wave solution of the KdV equation have been known already, substituting the solutions of the KdV equation into the corresponding transformation of variables respectively, the single and 2-solitary wave solutions of the three (2+1)-dimensional equations can be obtained successfully. Read More

In this paper, the famous Klein-Gordon-Zakharov equations are firstly generalized, the new special types of Klein-Gordon-Zakharov equations with the positive fractional power terms (gKGZE) are presented. In order to derive the exact solutions of new special gKGZE, the subsidiary higher order ordinary differential equations (sub-ODEs) with the positive fractional power terms are introduced, and with the aids of the Sub-ODE, the exact solutions of three special types of the gKGZE are derived, which are the bell-type solitary wave solution, the algebraic solitary wave solution, the kink-type solitary wave solution and the sinusoidal traveling wave solution, provided that the coefficients of gKGZE satisfy certain constraint conditions.

The Eisenhart geometric formalism, which transforms an Euclidean natural Hamiltonian $H=T+V$ into a geodesic Hamiltonian ${\cal T}$ with one additional degree of freedom, is applied to the four families of quadratically superintegrable systems with multiple separability in the Euclidean plane. Firstly, the separability and superintegrability of such four geodesic Hamiltonians ${\cal T}_r$ ($r=a,b,c,d$) in a three-dimensional curved space are studied and then these four systems are modified with the addition of a potential ${\cal U}_r$ leading to ${\cal H}_r={\cal T}_r +{\cal U}_r$. Secondly, we study the superintegrability of the four Hamiltonians $\widetilde{{\cal H}}_r= {\cal H}_r/ \mu_r$, where $\mu_r$ is a certain position-dependent mass, that enjoys the same separability as the original system ${\cal H}_r$. Read More

We discuss several new bi-Hamiltonian integrable systems on the plane with integrals of motion of third, fourth and sixth order in momenta. The corresponding variables of separation, separated relations, compatible Poisson brackets and recursion operators are also presented in the framework of the Jacobi method. Read More

We derive integrable equations starting from autonomous mappings with a general form inspired by the additive systems associated to the affine Weyl group E$_8^{(1)}$. By deautonomisation we obtain two hitherto unknown systems, one of which turns out to be a linearisable one, and we show that both these systems arise from the deautonomisation of a non-QRT mapping. In order to unambiguously prove the integrability of these nonautonomous systems, we introduce a series of Miura transformations which allows us to prove that one of these systems is indeed a discrete Painlev\'e equation, related to the affine Weyl group E$_7^{(1)}$, and to cast it in canonical form. Read More

Traveling wave solutions of (2 + 1)-dimensional Zoomeron equation(ZE) are developed in terms of exponential functions involving free parameters. It is shown that the novel Lie group of transformations method is a competent and prominent tool in solving nonlinear partial differential equations(PDEs) in mathematical physics. The similarity transformation method(STM) is applied first on (2 + 1)-dimensional ZE to find the infinitesimal generators. Read More

In this article we present a new method for construction of exact solutions of the Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation (LLG) for ferromagnetic nanowires. The method is based on the established relationship between the LLG and the nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation (NLS), and is aimed at resolving an old problem: how to produce multiple-rogue wave solutions of NLS using just the Darboux-type transformations. The solutions of this type - known as P-breathers - have been proven to exist by Dubard and Matveev, but their technique heavily relied on using the solutions of yet another nonlinear equation, Kadomtsev-Petviashvili I equation (KP-I), and its relationship with NLS.

The generalized Kawahara equation $u_t=a(t) u_{xxxxx} +b(t)u_{xxx} +c(t)f(u) u_x$ appears in many physical applications. A complete classification of low-order conservation laws and point symmetries is obtained for this equation, which includes as a special case the usual Kawahara equation $u_t = \alpha u u_x+\beta u^2u_x +\gamma u_{xxx}+\mu u_{xxxxx}$. A general connection between conservation laws and symmetries for the generalized Kawahara equation is derived through the Hamiltonian structure of this equation and its relationship to Noether's theorem using a potential formulation.

A variable-coefficient forced Korteweg-de Vries equation with spacial inhomogeneity is investigated in this paper. Under constraints, this equation is transformed into its bilinear form, and multi-soliton solutions are derived. Effects of spacial inhomogeneity for soliton velocity, width and background are discussed. Read More

In exactly solvable quantum mechanical systems, ladder and intertwining operators play a central role because, if they are found, the energy spectrums can be obtained algebraically. In this paper, we study such features of ladder and intertwining operators in a unified way, in which we make the operators to depend on parameters. It is shown that, when ladder operators depend on a parameter, the ordinary commutation relation for ladder operators is modified in a natural way. Read More

We propose a method to solve the initial value problem for the ultradiscrete Somos-4 and Somos-5 equations by expressing terms in the equations as convex polygons and regarding max-plus algebras as those on polygons. Read More

After a short review of the classical Lie theorem, a finite dimensional Lie algebra of vector fields is considered and the most general conditions under which the integral curves of one of the fields can be obtained by quadratures in a prescribed way will be discussed, determining also the number of quadratures needed to integrate the system. The theory will be illustrated with examples andbn an extension of the theorem where the Lie algebras are replaced by some distributions will also be presented. Read More
