On generalized Fourier transform for Kaup-Kupershmidt type equations. (English) Zbl 1203.37113

Summary: We develop the Fourier transform interpretation of the inverse scattering method for nonlinear integrable evolution equations associated with a \(\mathbb Z_3\) reduced Zakharov-Shabat system for the Lie algebra \({\mathfrak{sl}}(3,\mathbb C)\). A simple representative of this integrable hierarchy is the well-known Kaup-Kupershmidt equation. Our results admit a natural extention for nonlinear equations connected to a deeply reduced Zakharov-Shabat system related to an arbitrary simple Lie algebra.
