The present article reviews methods from spectral theory and algebraicgeometry for nding explicit solutions of the Toda equation, namely for the Nsoliton solution and quasiperiodic solutions. Along they way basic concepts like Lax pairs, associated hierarchies, and Blacklund transformations for the Toda equation are introduced.
