Abstract : The Benjamin-Ono equation is a well-known example of an integrable nonlinear dispersive equation in one space dimension. For solutions with periodic boundary conditions, I will discuss the link in the high frequency regime between the nonlinear Fourier transform inherited from the integrable structure, and a gauge transform introduced by T. Tao in 2004. As an application, we will get optimal high frequency approximations of solutions. This talk is based on a recent joint work with T. Kappeler and P. Topalov.
