Title: Bi-Hamiltonian structures of KdV type

Combining an old idea of Olver and Rosenau with the classification of second and third order homogeneous Hamiltonian operators we classify compatible trios of two-component homogeneous Hamiltonian operators. The trios yield pairs of compatible bi-Hamiltonian operators whose structure is a direct generalization of the bi-Hamiltonian pair of the KdV equation. The bi-Hamiltonian pairs give rise to multi-parametric families of bi-Hamiltonian systems. We recover known examples and we find new integrable systems whose central invariants are non-zero; this shows that new examples are not Miura-trivial.

This is a joint work with Paolo Lorenzoni and Andrea Savoldi.
