We show how many classes of partial differential systems with local and nonlocal nonlinearities are linearisable in the sense that they are realisable as Fredholm Grassmannian flows. In other words, time-evolutionary solutions to such systems can be constructed from solutions to the corresponding underlying linear partial differential system, by solving a linear Fredholm equation. For example, it is well-known that solutions to classical integrable partial differential systems can be generated

In this paper and in a companion paper, Doikou et al. [DMSW:graphflows], we both, survey the classes of nonlinear systems that are realisable as Fredholm Grassmannian flows, and present new example applications of such flows. We also demonstrate the usefulness of such a representation. Herein we extend the work of Poppe and demonstrate how solution flows of the non-commutative potential Korteweg de Vries and nonlinear Schrodinger systems are examples of such Grassmannian flows. In the companion paper we use this Grassmannian flow approach as well as an extension to nonlinear graph flows, to solve Smoluchowski coagulation and related equations.
