Title:Localized Induction Equation and Integrable Curve Dynamics
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Ron Perline, Drexel University
The localized induction equation (LIE) is an idealized model of vortex filament motion in an inviscid, incompressible fluid. Since its connection to integrability was discovered by Hasimoto in the 70's, there has been significant interest in LIE and its subsequent extensions and generalizations to integrable curve dynamics. We give an overview of the current status of these investigations.
