Recent Developments in Integrable Systems and Riemann-Hilbert Problems

Paperback
This volume is a collection of papers presented at a special session on integrable systems and Riemann-Hilbert problems. The goal of the meeting was to foster new research by bringing together experts from different areas. Their contributions to the volume provide a useful portrait of the breadth and depth of integrable systems. Topics covered in this title include discrete Painleve equations, integrable nonlinear partial differential equations, random matrix theory, Bose-Einstein condensation, spectral and inverse spectral theory, and last passage percolation models. In most of these articles, the Riemann-Hilbert problem approach plays a central role, which is powerful both analytically and algebraically. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in integrable systems and its applications.
