For the last 20-30 years, interest among mathematicians and physicists in infinite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems and Hamiltonian partial differential equations has been growing strongly, and many papers and a number of books have been written on integrable Hamiltonian PDEs. During the lastdecade though, the interest has shifted steadily towards non-integrable Hamiltonian PDEs. Here, not algebra but analysis and symplectic geometry are the appropriate analysing tools. The present book is the first one to use this approach to Hamiltonian PDEs and will be an invaluable source ofinformation for postgraduate mathematics and physics students and researchers.
