   Title: Geometry and Topology of the KdV equation

   Abstract. The Korteweg-de Vries equation (KdV) is an important
   example of a non-linear exactly solvable model. In this talk, we
   discuss a classical method of solution and show how it gives rise to
   solitary wave solutions. We also discuss the collisions of these
   waves.
