 Speaker: Professor Jen-Hsu Chang (National Defense University) Title: The Gould-Hopper Polynomials in the Novikov-Veselov Equation Time: 2011-05-05 (Thu.)  15:00 - 16:00 Place: Auditorium, 6 Floor, Institute of Mathematics (NTU Campus) Abstract: We use the Gould-Hopper (GH) polynomials to investigate the Novikov-Veselov (NV) equation. The root dynamics of the $\sigma$-flow in the NV equation is studied using the GH polynomials and then the Lax pair is found. In particulr, when $N=3,4,5$, one can get the Gold-fish model. The smooth rational solutions of the NV equation are also constructed via the extended Moutard transformation and the GH polynomials. The asymptotic behavior is discussed and then the smooth rational solution of the Tzitzeica equation is obtained. || Close window ||
