Title: A Darboux theorem for Hamiltonian systems in infinite dimensions
Speaker: Professor Ezra Getzler
Speaker Info: Northwestern University (and RIMS)
Brief Description:
Special Note:

The Hamiltonian systems we discuss are those of Dubrovin and Novikov, defined on any flat manifold. We show that any formal deformation of the Hamiltonian structure has a normal form of a simple type.

These results have applications to the deformation theory of completely integrable hierarchies.
