Motivated by the notion of Lagrangian multiforms, which provide a Lagrangian formulation of integrability, and by results of the authors on the role of covariant Hamiltonian formalism for integrable field theories, we propose the notion of Hamiltonian multiforms for integrable $1+1$-dimensional field theories. They provide the Hamiltonian counterpart of Lagrangian multiforms and encapsulate in a single object an arbitrary number of flows within an integrable hierarchy. For a given hierarchy… 
Multiform description of the AKNS hierarchy and classical r-matrix
In recent years, new properties of space-time duality in the Hamiltonian formalism of certain integrable classical field theories have been discovered and have led to their reformulation using ideas
Classical Yang-Baxter equation, Lagrangian multiforms and ultralocal integrable hierarchies
We cast the classical Yang-Baxter equation (CYBE) in a variational context for the first time, by relating it to the theory of Lagrangian multiforms, a framework designed to capture integrability in
Lagrangian multiforms on Lie groups and non-commuting flows
We describe a variational framework for non-commuting flows, extending the theories of Lagrangian multiforms and pluri-Lagrangian systems, which have gained prominence in recent years as a variational

Many integrable hierarchies of differential equations allow a variational description, called a Lagrangian multiform or a pluri-Lagrangian structure. The fundamental object in this theory is not a
On the Zakharov–Mikhailov action: $$4\hbox {d}$$ Chern–Simons origin and covariant Poisson algebra of the Lax connection
We derive the $2$d Zakharov-Mikhailov action from $4$d Chern-Simons theory. This $2$d action is known to produce as equations of motion the flatness condition of a large class of Lax connections of

Variational formulation of commuting Hamiltonian flows: Multi-time Lagrangian 1-forms
Recently, Lobb and Nijhoff initiated the study of variational (Lagrangian) structure of discrete integrable systems from the perspective of multi-dimensional consistency. In the present work, we

The main building blocks of the multi-time Euler–Lagrange equations for a discrete pluri-Lagrangian problem with d=2, the so-called corner equations, are derived and the notion of consistency of the system of corner equations is discussed.

A continuum limit procedure for pluri-Lagrangian systems, where the lattice parameters are interpreted as Miwa variables, describing a particular embedding in continuous multi-time of the mesh on which the discrete system lives.
A multisymplectic approach to defects in integrable classical field theory
A bstractWe introduce the concept of multisymplectic formalism, familiar in covariant field theory, for the study of integrable defects in 1 + 1 classical field theory. The main idea is the

A universal Lagrange structure for affine-linear quad-lattices alongside a universal Lagrangian multi-form structure for the corresponding continuous PDEs is established, and it is shown that the Lagrange forms possess the closure property.
Variational symmetries and pluri-Lagrangian systems in classical mechanics
We analyze the relation of the notion of a pluri-Lagrangian system, which recently emerged in the theory of integrable systems, to the classical notion of variational symmetry, due to E. Noether. We
Variational symmetries and Lagrangian multiforms
By considering the closure property of a Lagrangian multiform as a conservation law, we use Noether’s theorem to show that every variational symmetry of a Lagrangian leads to a Lagrangian multiform.
Multi-time Lagrangian 1-forms for families of Bäcklund transformations. Relativistic Toda-type systems
We establish the pluri-Lagrangian structure for families of Backlund transformations of relativistic Toda-type systems. The key idea is a novel embedding of these discrete-time (one-dimensional)
