Singular curves, degenerate theta functions and KP solutions
Daniele Agostini (Max Planck Institute (Leipzig))
Abstract: Smooth algebraic curves give rise to solutions to the KP equation, which models waves in shallow water, via Riemann's theta function. Singular curves produce solutions as well, but the theta function in this case becomes degenerate. I will present some results and questions in this direction, focusing on soliton and rational solutions.
