Non-algebraic curves play an increasing role in string theory, sometimes they are known to be related to the integrable systems of the KP/Toda type. Are there any investigated examples of the application of the Krichever-Novikov-Dubrovin description of integrable hierarchies to non-algebraic spectral curves?
