Lie algebras and Soliton PDEs"
Abstract: In this talk we will give an
overview of the interconnections between algebra, geometry and
differential equations going from the 1834 experimental
observations of Scott Russel of wave propagation to modern work on
hierarchies of soliton partial differential equations.

The former gives buildings and the latter gives parking lots; both
Note that PKH is the triangular building in
the 3 pm position in the former. Select Pickard Hall from the
building selector. PKH is next to the ``garage'' & is on
Nedderman Dr between Planatarium Place (aka College St) & West
St. West St is one-way northbound between W Mitchell St and 3rd
St. Parking is available in the nearby (East and SE of PKH)
parking lots with a UTA permit (but many people park there late on
Fridays with no permit). There are a few metered parking spots on
the East side of Pickard Hall on West St. Visitor (free), &
metered, parking is available by Davis Hall (marked DH in SW part
of the submap). A parking garage (expensive) is nextdoor to PKH
(use West St to get to it). Note that if heading south on Cooper,
then no left turn is allowed to Nedderman Dr.
Note that PKH 304
is on the 3rd floor of PKH; turn right out of elevator on 3rd
Questions, etc on arrangements/directions should be
sent to Dr Vancliff; if
travelling from out of town, notify Dr Vancliff, as we will delay
starting the talk for you if you are late.
