Integrability of symplectic Monge-Ampere equations.

Integrability of dispersionless Hirota type equations by the method of hydrodynamic reductions will be discussed. This will be applied to symplectic Monge-Ampere equations, and a classification using the geometry of Lagrangian Grassmannian will be obtained. Model equations include dKP, Plebansky and other known equations of mathematical physics.
