inner product, k N, endows the diffeomorphism group of the circle with
a Riemannian structure. For k 1 the Riemannian exponential map is a smooth local
diffeomorphism and the length-minimizing property of geodesics holds.

Results on the Volterra model which is associated to the simple Lie algebra of type An
are extended to the BogoyavlenskyVolterra systems of type Bn, Cn and Dn. In paticular we find Lax pairs, Hamiltonian and Casimir functions and multi-Hamiltonian
structures. Moreover, we investigate recursion operators,...

The procedure of Dirac reduction of Poisson operators on submanifolds is discussed
within a particularly useful special realization of the general Marsden-Ratiu redution procedure. The Dirac classification of constraints on `first-class' constraints and
`second-class' constraints is reexamined.

The connection between the complex Sine and Sinh-Gordon equations associated with
a Weierstrass type system and the possibility of construction of several classes of
multivortex solutions is discussed in detail. We perform the Painlevé Test and analyse
the possibility of deriving the Bäcklund transformation...

We present a notation for q-calculus, which leads to a new method for computtions and classifications of q-special functions. With this notation many formulas of
q-calculus become very natural, and the q-analogues of many orthogonal polynomals and functions assume a very pleasant form reminding directly...

The N = 2 super-KP equation associated with nonstandard flows is bilinearized using
the Hirota method and soliton solutions are obtained. The bilinearization has been
done for component fields and its KdV limit is discussed by comparing the soliton
solutions obtained by this procedure with those found...

We provide a variational description of any Liouville, i.e. volume preserving, autnomous vector field on a smooth manifold. This is obtained via a "maximal degree"
variational principle; critical sections for this are integral manifolds for the Liouville
vector field. We work in coordinates and provide...

We study the Toda equations in the continuous level, discrete level and ultradiscrete
level in terms of elliptic and hyperelliptic and functions of genera one and two.
The ultradiscrete Toda equation appears as a discrete-valuation of recursion relations
