Classical Statistical Mechanics of Integrable Systems

  • Nikos Theodorakopoulos
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 30)


The aim of this contribution is to present a brief account of recent developments in the area of soliton thermodynamics, which demonstrate the validity of the soliton paradigm [1] in a statistical-mechanical context and establish a link between three seemingly disparate lines of nonlinear development: Inverse scattering theory (IST), transfer integral (TI) method and the Bethe Ansatz (RA).
