#### Basic Methods of Soliton Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 80.00 US$ 72.80In the 25 years of its existence Soliton Theory has drastically expanded our understanding of “integrability” and contributed a lot to the reunification of Mathematics and Physics in the range from deep algebraic geometry and modern representation theory to quantum field theory and optical transmission lines.The book is a systematic introduction... more...

#### Quantum Many-Body Systems in One Dimension

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 32.00 US$ 29.12The main theme of the book is the intimate connection between the two families of exactly solvable models: the inverse-square exchange (ISE) and the nearest-neighbor exchange (NNE) models. The latter are better known as the Bethe-Ansatz solvable models and include the Heisenberg spin chain, t–J models and Hubbard models. The former, the Calogero–Sutherland... more...
