Title: On Geometrical Structures and Properties of Solutions 
to Hamiltonian Partial Differential Equations

Abstract: in the talk we will study Hamiltonian perturbations 
of hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations (PDEs)  
with one spatial variable. The deformation theory of integrable 
PDEs will be discussed. We also consider the behaviour of 
solutions to such systems at the point of "phase transition" 
from regular to oscillatory regime.

Lunch with speaker: we meet around 1PM at the Level 2 
entry to Carslaw Building.
