AbstractIt is known that the uni ed transform method may be used to solve any well-posed initial-boundary value problem for a linear constant-coecient evolution equation on the nite in-terval or the half-line. In contrast, classical methods such as Fourier series and transformtechniques may only be used to solve certain problems. The solution representation obtainedby such a classical method is known to be an expansion in the eigenfunctions or generalisedeigenfunctions of the self-adjoint…

Synthesis, as Opposed to Separation, of Variables

It is shown here that Lax pairs provide the generalization of the divergence formulation from a separable linear to an integrable nonlinear PDE, whose crucial feature is the existence of a Lax pair formulation.
