On the Toda Lattice. II: Inverse scattering solution. (English) Zbl 0942.37505

Summary: An inverse-scattering method is developed for the solution of the exponential lattice of Toda. As an application of this method, the general \(N\)-soliton formula is derived, and constants of the motion are expressed in terms of the scattering data.
