Particles versus fields in PT-symmetrically deformed integrable systems

Fring, A. (2009). Particles versus fields in PT-symmetrically deformed integrable systems. Pramana, 73(2), pp. 363-373. doi: 10.1007/s12043-009-0128-2


We review some recent results on how PT symmetry, that is a simultaneous time-reversal and parity transformation, can be used to construct new integrable models. Some complex valued multi-particle systems, such as deformations of the Calogero-Moser-Sutherland models, are shown to arise naturally from real valued field equations of nonlinear integrable systems. Deformations of complex non-linear integrable field equations, some of them even allowing for compacton solutions, are also investigated. The integrabilty of various systems is established by means of the Painlevé test.
