Abstract (Summary)
(Uncorrected OCR) Absact of the entled Isospectral Transformations etween Soliton-solutions of the orteweg-de Vries Equation Submitted by Lee Tad Ming for the Degree of Master of Philosophy at The University of Hong Kong in March 1994. Hee, he iosecl tanmas under he regime of superymmeic qan mechanic are employed to study special features ( main solto soluts ) of the eweg-de Vrie eq K-dV in t ). Such ransforma wih reference to solto hery are ignificant becaus solton evolut are exactl sospecra s under he inver cattering me The first pcedre to st sospecra Hamiltonian can e daed ack to he wrk of Darbou 1882 and, er Cr 1955). Recently, he hery of su erymmeric qantum mechanic in ne-dimenn has been developed and wide died. One of the ide s of this they is to povide an n-hand ce to stt the famiies of sospecra Hamiltonians. F his thery, a ecnd of sospecral transforman was poposed Abraham and Moss (198). Puey 1986a) then inced a hird .
