Basic notions regarding classical integrable systems are reviewed. An algebraic description of the classical integrable models together with the zero curvature condition description is presented. The classical r-matrix approach for discrete and continuum classical integrable models is introduced. Using this framework the associated classical integrals of motion and the corresponding Lax pair are extracted based on algebraic considerations. Our attention is restricted to classical discrete and…

Solitons: Conservation laws and dressing methods

We review some of the fundamental notions associated with the theory of solitons. More precisely, we focus on the issue of conservation laws via the existence of the Lax pair and also on methods that

Liouville integrable defects: the non-linear Schrödinger paradigm

A bstractA systematic approach to Liouville integrable defects is proposed, based on an underlying Poisson algebraic structure. The non-linear Schrödinger model in the presence of a single

Exact solutions of open integrable quantum spin chains

In the thesis we present an analytic approach towards exact description for steady state density operators of nonequilibrium quantum dynamics in the framework of open systems. We employ the so-called



Introduction to Quantum Integrability

In this article we review the basic concepts regarding quantum integrability. Special emphasis is given on the algebraic content of integrable models. The associated algebras are essentially

Nonlinear Schrödinger equations and simple Lie algebras

We associate a system of integrable, generalised nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations with each Hermitian symmetric space. These NLS equations are considered as reductions of more general systems,

Quantum Bäcklund transformation for the integrable DST model

For the integrable case of the discrete self-trapping (DST) model we construct a Backlund transformation. The dual Lax matrix and the corresponding dual Backlund transformation are also found and

Construction of integrable quantum lattice models through Sklyanin-like algebras

A systematic approach for generation of integrable quantum lattice models exploiting the underlying Uq(2) quantum group structure as well as its multiparameter generalization is presented. We find an

$A_n^{(1)}$ affine Toda field theories with integrable boundary conditions revisited

Generic classically integrable boundary conditions for the $A_{n}^{(1)}$ affine Toda field theories (ATFT) are investigated. The present analysis rests primarily on the underlying algebra, defined by
