# Analysis & its Applications

*The history of the relations between Physics and Mathematics is a long
and romantic story. The "old" Classical Physics gave
linear partial differential equations to Mathematics. All their three basic
classes - elliptic (Laplace equation), parabolic (heat equation), and
hyperbolic (wave equation) - were born in the Classical Physics of the
eighteenth century. The "new" Classical Physics opened for mathematicians
the magic world of nonlinear partial differential equations, two of its
most valuable presents - solitons and fractal sets - appearing in the theory
of turbulence. It is natural to add to this list the discovery of nonlinear
integrable Hamiltonian systems with an infinite number of degrees of freedom.*
