Contents:
Introduction -- Integrable Hamiltonian systems on affine Poisson varietie: Affine Poisson varieties and their morphisms; Integrable Hamiltonian systems and their morphisms; Integrable Hamiltonian systems on other spaces -- Integrable Hamiltonian systems and symmetric products of curves: The systems and their integrability; The geometry of the level manifolds -- Interludium: the geometry of Abelian varieties: Divisors and line bundles; Abelian varieties; Jacobi varieties; Abelian surfaces of type (1,4) -- Algebraic completely integrable Hamiltonian systems: A.c.i. systems; Painlev analysis for a.c.i. systems; The linearization of two-dimensional a.c.i. systems; Lax equations -- The Mumford systems: Genesis; Multi-Hamiltonian structure and symmetries; The odd and the even Mumford systems; The general case -- Two-dimensional a.c.i. systems and applications: The genus two Mumford systems; Application: generalized Kummersurfaces; The Garnier potential; An integrable geodesic flow on SO(4); ...
Summary: This book treats the general theory of Poisson structures and integrable systems on affine varieties in a systematic way. Special attention is drawn to algebraic completely integrable systems. Several integrable systems are constructed and studied in detail and a few applications of integrable systems to algebraic geometry are worked out. In the second edition some of the concepts in Poisson geometry are clarified by introducting Poisson cohomology; the Mumford systems are constructed from the algebra of pseudo-differential operators, which clarifies their origin; a new explanation of the multi Hamiltonian structure of the Mumford systems is given by using the loop algebra of sl(2); and finally Goedesic flow on SO(4) is added to illustrate the linearizatin algorith and to give another application of integrable systems to algebraic geometry.
