The Bethe Ansatz and Integrable Structures


Friday May 27-th and Saturday May 28-th, 2005

        This is a meeting of the Classical and Quantum Integrability seminar organised by the Universities of Glasgow,
        Leeds, Loughborough and the Edinburgh Mathematical Physics Group (Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt) .

         The meeting is partially funded by the London Mathematical Society. The Glasgow Mathematical Journal Trust
         is supporting the visit of Dr. Zabrodin who will be lecturing more widely in Scotland.

The focus of the meeting is "The Bethe Ansatz and Integrable Structures" and  the speakers have been asked to give overviews of their respective understanding of the subject. It is hoped that these talks will be intelligible to a wide audience.

           The talks will start at 2:00 pm on the Friday and end at 1:00 pm on the Saturday.
