Hamiltonian LiePoisson structures of the threewave equations associated with the Lie algebras su(3) and su(2, 1) are derived and shown to be compatible. Poisson reduction is performed using the method of invariants and geometric phases associated with the reconstruction are calculated. These results can be applied to applications of nonlinearwaves in, for instance, nonlinear optics. Some of the general structures presented in the latter part of this paper are implicit in the literature; our purpose is to put the threewave interaction in the modern setting of geometric mechanics and to explore some new things, such as explicit geometric phase formulas, as well as some old things, such as integrability, in this context.

The integrable structure of the threewave equations is discussed in the setting of geometric mechanics. LiePoisson structures with quadratic Hamiltonian are associated with the threewave equations through the Lie algebras su(3) and su(2, 1). A second structure having cubic Hamiltonian is shown to be compatible. The analogy between this system and the rigidbody or Euler equations is discussed. Poisson reduction is performed using the method of invariants and geometric phases associated with the reconstruction are calculated. We show that using piecewise continuous controls, the transfer of energy among three 1 waves can be controlled. The so called quasiphasematching control strategy, which is used in a host of nonlinear optical devices to convert laser light from one frequency to another, is described in this context. Finally, we discuss the connection between piecewise constant controls and billiards.
