We present an integrable Hamiltonian which describes the sinh-Gordon model on the half line coupled to a non-linear oscillator at the boundary. We explain how we apply Sklyanin's formalism to a dynamical reflection matrix to obtain this model. This method can be applied to couple other integrable field theories to dynamical systems at the boundary. We also show how to find the dynamical solution of the quantum reflection equation corresponding to our particular example. 

Coupling The Sine-Gordon Field Theory to a Mechanical System at the Boundary

We describe an integrable system consisting of the sine-Gordon field, restricted to the half line, and coupled to a non-linear oscillator at the boundary. By extension of the coupling constant to

Integrability of the boundary sine-Gordon model

We construct a boundary Lagrangian for the supersymmetric sine-Gordon model which preserves (B-type) supersymmetry and integrability to all orders in the bulk coupling constant g. The supersymmetry

From Hamiltonian to zero curvature formulation for classical integrable boundary conditions

We reconcile the Hamiltonian formalism and the zero curvature representation in the approach to integrable boundary conditions for a classical integrable system in 1  +  1 space-time dimensions. We

Infinite dimension reflection matrices in the sine-Gordon model with a boundary

Using the sine-Gordon model as the prime example an alternative approach to integrable boundary conditions for a theory restricted to a half-line is proposed. The main idea is to explore the



New solutions to the reflection equation and the projecting method

New integrable boundary conditions for integrable quantum systems can be constructed by tuning of scattering phases due to reflection at a boundary and an adjacent impurity and subsequent projection
