On a class of many-body problems in the plane (including integrable and nonintegrable cases) which possess a lot of periodic solutions
A class of many-body problems in the plane, characterised by translation- and rotation-invariant Newtonian equations of motion (derivable from a Hamiltonian), and including both integrable and (presumably) nonintegrable cases, is shown to possess lots of completely periodic solutions (emerging from open sets of initial data having nonvanishing measure in phase space). The mechanism whereby this happens is elucidated; the light thereby shone on the connection among integrability and analyticity in (complex) time, as well as on the emergence of a chaotic behavior not associated with any local exponential divergence of trajectories in phase space, illuminates interesting phenomena of more general validity than for the particular model considered herein.

Whitham equations, Bergman kernel and logarithmic potential theory
We show that the Bergman kernel, defined on hyperelliptic Riemann surfaces, solves two different variational problems. First we show that it provides the solution of the Whitham equations for KdV and NLS. Then we show that the equilibrium measure for logarithmic potentials in the presence of an external field can be expressed in terms of the Bergman kernel.

Periods of hyperelliptic integrals expressed in terms of $\theta$- constants by means of Thomae formulae
The expressions for the periods of first and second type integrals on hyperelliptic curve are given in terms of $\theta$-constants. The principal tool of the derivation are Thomae formulae which link theta constants with branching points. Another ingredient of the derivation is the Picard-Fuchs equations for the hyperelliptic periods. The talk will survey some basic results in the theory of hyperelliptic functions.

Homoclinic orbits for a modified KdV equation
We study the homoclinic structure of modified Korteweg--de Vries equation under dissipative perturbations. The homoclinic orbits are constructed through the Backlund transformation of mKdV equation. For external parameters on a codimension 1 submanifold, the persistence of homoclinic solutions to periodic traveling waves is established through an argument which combines Mel'nikov method and the dynamics of the finite dimensional reduced system on the plane of periodic traveling waves.

Solution methods for Benney's equations
Benney's equations can be written as a Vlasov equation for a distribution function f(x,p,t). In some special cases, the reductions described by Gibbons and Tsarev, the initial value problem can be solved. The general case is more problematic, though Geogjaev has sketched some important steps towards a solution. We study the relationships between these constructions and with the d-bar techniques used by Konopelchenko and Martinez Alonso.

is it possible to give its complete parametric solution

A Kapaev Quasi-linear Stokes phenomenon for the second Painlev\'e transcendent
Using the Riemann-Hilbert approach, we study the quasi-linear Stokes phenomenon for the second Painlev\'e equation $y_{xx}=2y^3+xy-\alpha$. The precise description of the exponentially small jump in the dominant solution approaching $\alpha/x$ as $|x|\to\infty$ is given. For the asymptotic power expansion of the dominant solution, the asymptotics of the coefficients is found.

V Sokolov Compatible Lie brackets and integrable $\sigma$-models
Two classes of integrable nonlinear systems of hyperbolic equations on semi-simple Lie algebras are considered. All these systems are generalizations of the principle chiral model. Each of these systems is related to a pair of compatible Lie brackets. Lax representations for all systems, defined by decompositions of the Lie algebra of Laurant series into a sum of two subalgebras are given. New examples of compatible brackets are presented.

Inverse scattering transform for the perturbed 1-soliton potential of the nonstationary Schroedinger and heat equations
The inverse scattering theory for the nonstationary Schroedinger and heat equations is generalised to include a special subclass of potentials nondecaying at space infinity---perturbations of the one-soliton potential by means of decaying two-dimensional functions. Appropriate generalisations of the Jost solutions are introduced and their properties are investigated in detail. The singularity structure of these solutions is shown to be essentially more involved than in the standard case of rapidly decaying potential. Corresponding scattering data are introduced and their singularity structure is investigated as well. Formulation of the inverse problem is given as result of this study.

Analytic representation of DM-solitons in the NLS equation
A simple exact formula is derived for the profile of the optical pulse propagating over a DM fibre with zero mean dispersion. The dissipation is neglected and dispersion is assumed to be constant along the adjacent legs of the waveguide, thus providing the applicability of the integrable NLS models within each leg. The formula describes a class of solutions called dispersion managed solitons (DM solitons),which are periodic along the waveguide and exponentially localised in time.

DM solitons are parametrised by a certain class of spectral data, specified from numerical simulations. Using a related Riemann-Hilbert problem we reconstruct a profile of DM soliton from the given spectral data. For long enough legs the leading term of DM soliton is found in explicit form by "asymptotic undressing" of the Riemann-Hilbert problem. The analytical results are compared with numerical simulations.

Uniformisation of algebraic curves: on the Burnside curve
We draw attention to the first and only example of an algebraic curve of genus g>1 (the Burnside curve) which has a complete parametrisation in terms of known special functions. As a byproduct of our consideration we get accessory parameters for the associated Fuchsian equation, its complete integral, and a few little-known formulas in the theory of Weierstrass elliptic functions and series expansions for the meromorphic functions, parametrizing the Burnside curve.
