Trigonal curves and algebro-geometric solutions to soliton hierarchies II
MetadataShow full item record
This is a continuation of a study on Riemann theta function representations of algebro-geometric solutions to soliton hierarchies. In this part, we straighten out all flows in soliton hierarchies under the Abel-Jacobi coordinates associated with Lax pairs, upon determining the Riemann theta function representations of the Baker-Akhiezer functions, and generate algebro-geometric solutions to soliton hierarchies in terms of the Riemann theta functions, through observing asymptotic behaviours of the Baker-Akhiezer functions. We emphasize that we analyse the four-component AKNS soliton hierarchy in such a way that it leads to a general theory of trigonal curves applicable to construction of algebro-geometric solutions of an arbitrary soliton hierarchy.
