Abstract:
It is well known that with every Kac–Moody Lie algebra one can
associate an integrable two dimensional Toda type system. In paticular
the sinhGordon equation corresponds to the algebra $A_1^{(1)}$,
the Tzitzeica equation to $A_2^{(2)}$, the usual periodic Toda lattice to
$A_n^{(1)}$, etc. In our work we construct integrable chains of
B"acklund transformations for Toda type systems associated with
the classical families of Kac–Moody algebras and derive Darboux
transformations for the corresponding Lax operators.
We also discuss integrable finite difference systems corresponding
to the Bianchi permutability of the Bäcklund transformations.
