A scalar Riemann-Hilbert problem on the torus: Applications to the KdV equation

  author={Mateusz Piorkowski and Gerald Teschl},
We take a closer look at the Riemann–Hilbert problem associated to one-gap solutions of the Korteweg–de Vries equation. To gain more insight, we reformulate it as a scalar Riemann–Hilbert problem on the torus. This enables us to derive deductively the model vector-valued and singular matrixvalued solutions in terms of Jacobi theta functions. We compare our results with those obtained in recent literature.

In this article we present a new and general approach to analyzing the asymptotics of oscillatory Riemann-Hilbert problems. Such problems arise, in particular, when evaluating the long-time behavior

We show that the long-time behavior of solutions to the Korteweg-de Vries shock problem can be described as a slowly modulated one-gap solution in the dispersive shock region. The modulus of the
Long-Time Asymptotics for the Korteweg–de Vries Equation via Nonlinear Steepest Descent
We apply the method of nonlinear steepest descent to compute the long-time asymptotics of the Korteweg–de Vries equation for decaying initial data in the soliton and similarity region. This paper can

A notion of Lp-Riemann–Hilbert problem is introduced and basic uniqueness results and Fredholm properties are established and the implications of Fredholmness for the unique solvability are investigated.
