How do you use the inverse scattering transform?

  1. May 13, 2009 #1

    I was wondering if anyone is familiar with using the Inverse Scattering Transform to solve some kinds of non-linear differential equations.

    I have been trying to look up examples of solving non-linear differential equations using the inverse scattering transform, but all the websites I find seem not to give any specific clear examples illustrating how to use the IST transform technique.

    I was wondering if anyone could explain what the inverse scattering transform is, and a quick example that illustrates its use? Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you.


    p.s. I have a BS in mathematics, and so have some familiarity with PDE's, and ODE's from my schooling if that helps.
