Nature of problem:
The existence of multi-soliton solutions strongly suggest the integrability of nonlinear evolution equations. However enormous calculation is required to verify multi-soliton solutions of ultradiscrete equations. The use of computer algebra can be helpful in such calculations.

Solution method:
Simplification by using the properties of max-plus algebra.

The program can only handle single ultradiscrete equations.

Running time:
Depends on the complexity of the equation and solution. For the examples included in the distribution the run times are as follows.
(Core 2 Duo 3GHz, Windows XP)
  • example1 : 2725 sec
  • example2 : 33 sec
  • example3 : 1 sec
