Hydrodynamics of weakly deformed soliton lattices. Differential geometry and Hamiltonian theory. (English) Zbl 0712.58032

The authors review results due to the authors and to their colleagues in Moscow concerning the general theory of Hamiltonian systems of hydrodynamic type and the hydrodynamics of weakly deformed soliton lattices that were obtained in 1982-1988.

A short introduction - without details - to soliton lattices and the Whitham equation is given.
