On geometrical structures and properties of solutions to Hamiltonian systems of partial differential equations

In the talk we will consider Hamiltonian perturbations of hyperbolic systems of partial differential
equations (PDEs)  with one spatial variable. The deformation theory of integrable PDEs will also be discussed.
We also consider the behaviour of solutions to such systems at the point of "phase transition" from regular
to oscillatory behaviour.

Coffee will be served at 12:00 before the lecture
at Schreiber building 006
