On Liouville integrable defects

A systematic approach to Liouville integrable defects is proposed, based on an underlying Poisson algebraic structure. The non-linear Schrodinger model in the presence of a single point-like defect is investigated through this algebraic approach. Local integrals of motions are constructed as well as the time components of the corresponding Lax pairs. Continuity conditions imposed upon the time components of the Lax pair give rise to sewing conditions. Coincidence of our results with the continuum limit of the corresponding discrete expressions further confirms our approach.
