Symplectic non-squeezing for the KdV and fifth-order KdV equations


In this talk we prove that the first two members of the KdV hierarchy have the non-squeezing property, that is, they cannot map a ball in the symplectic space H^{-\frac{1}{2}} wholly inside a thinner cylinder. This is an infinite-dimensional analogue of Gromov's famous symplectic non-squeezing theorem. Our proof relies on an approximation scheme by finite-dimensional Hamiltonian systems that exploits the complete integrability of these equations.

This activity is part of the 24 hours of science at McGill event. Join our Science Outreach groups for a day of free activities for youth and families! For more information on our full program visit this link.

Join McGill Science Outreach to explore nature and learn about how trees grow from tiny seeds to adults aged hundreds, even thousands of years old. We’ll explore some of the magnificent trees and wildlife that rely on them, around campus with fun activities.

Panel Overview: Instructors design and implement the teaching that students experience. This panel will focus on how Generative AI is forcing us to rethink what and how we teach and conduct assessments. Instructors and students from different disciplines will share reflections on their experiences and discuss future directions for teaching in the age of Generative AI.

Panel Overview: Students learn in formal and informal settings and ways. Generative AI will challenge our assumptions about the way learning happens and what it means to have learned something. This panel will explore the experiences of instructors and students from different disciplines and look to future directions for learning in the age of generative AI.

Overview: While beliefs regarding the impact of AI on education – both realized and potential – are readily available, what we actually know and understand about such impacts is still quite limited.  This panel will illustrate some of the routes that researchers are taking towards building a better collective understanding necessary for the responsible use of AI in education.
