On the Cauchy Problem for the modified Korteweg-de Vries Equation with Steplike Finite-Gap Initial Data

Iryna Egorova and Gerald Teschl

We solve the Cauchy problem for the modified Korteweg-de Vries equation with steplike quasi-periodic, finite-gap initial conditions under the assumption that the perturbations have a given number of derivatives and moments finite.
