In [BT1,BT2] we describe a new phenomenon (the so-called
"integrable chaos") in dynamical systems. Namely, we have
constructed a series of examples of integrable geodesic flows with
positive topological entropy. These systems, in particular, are
counterexamples to the Paternain conjecture on non-integrability of
geodesic flows on compact manifolds with fundamental groups of exponential
growth. In [BDV] we have studied the spectral problem for these examples.
In particular, we have described the spectrum ot the Laplace operator, its
eigenfunctions and the quantum monodromy phenomenon.

The following question is classical in modern Riemannian
geometry: what are smooth compact manifolds
that admit integrable geodesic flows? In [BJ1, BJ2] we generalize a series
of results obtained by Mishchenko, Thimm, Paternain, Spatzier and Bazaikin
by proving that all homogeneous spaces G/H as well as bi-quotients
K\G/H of a compact Lie group G admit integrable geodesic

Two Riemannian metrics g and g' on a manifold M are said to
be projectively equivalent if they have the same geodesics (considered as
unparameterized curves). In [BM1] we have found a new condition for two
metrics to be projectively equivalent and show that the class of
projectively equivalent geodesic flows coincide with the so-called Benenti
systems. In particular, such geodesic flows are always bi-hamiltonian.

In [B1] we study non-degenerate singularities of Lagrangian foliations
on four-dimensional symplectic manifolds.
The main result of this paper is the topological
classification of saddle-saddle singularities of complexity two
(i.e., with 2 critical points on the singular leaf). We have shown that
there are exactly 39 different topological types of such singularities.
This classification turns out to be quite useful for the topological
analysis of integrable Hamiltonian systems with two degrees of freedom. In
particular, in [BRF] we use the results and ideas of [B1] to obtain the
complete topological description of the Kovalevskaya top in rigid body

In [BF1], [B2] we have constructed
an invariant (more precisely, a family of invariants) that allows one to
classify integrable Hamiltonian systems with two degrees of freedom up to
orbital equivalence. By applying this technics, in [BF2] we have
found a new non-trivial orbital isomorphism between two classical systems:
Euler top in rigid body dynamics and the geodesic flow on the ellipsoid
(Jacobi problem). Then, using smooth orbital invariants, in [BD] we have
shown that this isomorphism is only continious: in the smooth sense the
two systems are not equivalent.

It is well-known that a pair of compatible Poisson
brackets on a manifold M always generates a commutative
subalgebra A in the Poisson algebra of all smooth functions on M. A natural
problem appearing very often in applications is to find out whether A is complete (i.e., guarantees the complete Liouville
integrability). In [B3, B4, B5] I have obtained a completeness criterion which
allows one to answer efficiently this question. A particular case of this
theorem gives necessary and sufficient conditions for completeness of some
well-known commutative subalgebras in the Poisson-Lie algebra P(g) of a finite-dimensional Lie algebra g
(see [B3, B4, B5]) . These results are closely related to the
Mischenko-Fomenko conjecture (1978) saying that P(g) always
admits a complete commutative subalgebra.
In [B6] we give a constructive proof of this conjecture following the
method suggested recently by S. Sadetov.

In [BM2] we study symplectic invariants of singular Lagrangian
foliations on simplectic 4-manifolds and then apply them to
the classical rigidity problem in Riemannian geometry. Namely, we
construct new nontrivial examples of Riemannian metrics with
conjugate geodesic flows on 2-surfaces
of arbitrary genus.
In [BV] we study semilocal symplectic invariants of non-degenerate
singularities of Lagrangian foliations of arbitrary dimension.
In particular, we obtain a symplectic
classification of non-degenerate singularities of complexity one.
