The Toda Lattice
Adam Artymowicz, Department of Mathematics, Caltech,

The Toda lattice is a chain of particles which interact through a certain nonlinear potential. It is a so-called integrable system, which means that its time evolution can be explicitly solved. I will talk about some aspects of the solution and its surprising connections on one hand with the theory of algebraic curves, and on the other hand with the theory of semisimple Lie algebras.
