Burchnall-Chaundy theory

Burchnall-Chaundy theory refers to ramifications of the theory of commuting differential operators. Under some assumptions commuting operators have to satisfy an algebraic relation (defining therefore an algebraic curve, Burchnall-Chaundy curve). The main origin is 1928 paper of Burchnall and Chaundy.
