## Bologna, September 22- 25, 2004

# **Analytic and Geometric
theory **

of the

Camassa-Holm equation and Integrable Systems

###

**Supported by:**

A workshop on the analytic and geometric theory of the Camassa-Holm
equation and related integrable equations is being organized at CIRAM.
The Camassa-Holm equation is the governing equation for waves in shallow
water when surface tension is present. This involves an asymptotic expansion
in small amplitude of the incompressible Euler equation for unidirectional
motion under the influence of gravity.
A particular emphasis will be given on future developments.

The workshop will take place at CIRAM, Via Saragozza 8, Bologna
ITALY from Wednesday September 22 to Saturday September 25, 2004.

Topics to be discussed are expected
to include:

- Analytic and
geometric Theory of the Camassa-Holm equation;
- Semi-Classical
limits;
- Poisson bracket
deformation theory;
- Integrable systems
and their perturbations.
