Place : 
Lecture Hall, Inst. of Mathematics 

Abstract: 
In the first talk, intended to be understandable by undergraduate students
with some familiarity to ordinary differential operators, I'd like to show
concrete examples of commuting differential operators and basic tools to
study them, including the KP hierarchy.
In the second talk I'd like to explain the BurchnallChaundyKrichever
theory and a solution to RiemannSchottky problem using the KP hierarchy
or the KP equation i.e., the first nontrivial differential equation in
the hierarchy.
