Mathematical methods of nonlinear Physics


 General description of the project

The MMNLP project has been renewed for the three years 2024, 2025, 2026. The main changes are in the number of units of the project: alltogether the units of the project for next three years are Lecce, Milano Bicocca, Milano, Roma, Torino and Trieste.

The aim of the expansion is to consolidate the MMNLP project and to make it the reference project in the field of (infinite-dimensional) Integrable Systems in Italy. At the moment, to our knowledge, MMNLP gathers almost all Italian researchers whose interests are in this field.

The list of research subjects that are covered by MMNLP also grew to encompass almost all Italian researchers who are active in the field of infinite-dimensional Integrable Systems.
