Abstract : The first two years of this AASERT grant supported the research of Ken McLaughlin concerning the continuum limit of the Toda lattice. Ken earned his a Ph.D. in August, 1994 and assumed an Assistant Professorship at Ohio State University in September 1994. The final year of this AASERT grant supported the study of Ivan Blank during the academic year 1994-5. Blank was a second-year student when he received this support. His special topic for the Oral Exam was Partial Differential Equations. Blank passed this exam in October, 1995. (MM)
