# On Lax operators

@inproceedings{Sole2021OnLO, title={On Lax operators}, author={Alberto De Sole and Victor G. Kac and Daniele Valeri}, year={2021} }

A pseudodifferential operator L(∂) of order N is called a Lax operator if the Lax equations ∂L ∂tk = [(L k N )+, L] are non-zero and consistent for infinitely many positive integers k. In the present paper we discuss properties of Lax operators along the lines of the theory of KP and n-KdV hierarchies.
