This book seems to get recommended by courses on solitons, possibly because there are no good alternatives. The book is very old fashioned in style, important results are relegated to exercises, important steps in proofs are skipped and key Cited by: Get this from a library. Solitons in crystalline Solitons book statistical thermodynamics of structural phase transitions and mesoscopic disorder.

[Minoru Fujimoto; Institute of Physics (Great Britain),] -- Solitons in Crystalline Processes is an introduction to the statistical thermodynamics of phase transitions in crystallized solids.

This book is written as an introductory Solitons book with. Solitons book basic properties of solitons are introduced here using examples from macroscopic physics (e.g. blood pressure pulses and fibre optical communications). The book then presents the main theoretical methods before discussing applications from solid state or atomic physics such as dislocations, excitations in spin chains, conducting polymers Cited by: This book is the first to provide a thorough overview of optical solitons.

The main purpose of this book is to present the rapidly developing field of Spatial Optical Solitons starting from the basic concepts of light self-focusing and self-trapping.

Solitons are waves that retain their form through obstacle and distance. Solitons can be found in hydrodynamics, nonlinear optics, plasma physics, and biology. Optical solitons are solitary light waves that hold their form over an expansive interval.

Conservation of this form creates an effective model for long distance voice and data transmission. This book is the first to provide a thorough overview of optical solitons.

The main purpose of this book is to present the rapidly developing field of Spatial Optical Solitons starting from the basic concepts of light self-focusing and self-trapping. It will introduce the fundamental concepts of the theory of nonlinear waves and solitons in non.

A 'soliton' is a localized nonlinear wave of Solitons book form which may interact strongly with other solitons so that when they separate after the interaction they regain their original forms.

This textbook is an account of the theory of solitons and of the diverse applications of the theory to nonlinear systems arising in the physical sciences. The essence of the book is an introduction. An Explicit Example: The KdV 2-Soliton Collision Let's get specific, and I think it will be easier to see what I mean.

The KdV equation is a non-linear partial differential equation for a function u(x,t).If we think of the function of giving the height of the wave at time t and position x along a canal, then this equation does a pretty good job of describing what happens to the surface.

Solitons: An Introduction discusses the theory of solitons and its diverse applications to nonlinear systems that arise in the physical sciences. Drazin and Johnson explain the generation and properties of solitons, introducing the mathematical technique known as the Inverse Solitons book Tranform.

Their aim is to present the essence of inverse scattering clearly, rather than 5/5(1). This is a book about solitons as they appear in mathematics and physics. It is an outgrowth of a set of lectures I gave in June as part of a series supported by the National Science Foundation through the Conference Board on the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS).

This book provides an up-to-date overview of mathematical theories and research results on solitons, presenting related mathematical methods and applications as well as numerical experiments.

Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1. There are two approaches in the study of differential equations of field theory.

The first, finding closed-form solutions, works only for a narrow category of problems. Written by a well-known active researcher, this book focuses on the second, which is to investigate solutions using tools from modern nonlinear analysis.

Drawing on the award winning research of Carnegie Mellon’s David S. Ricketts, Electrical Solitons Theory, Design, and Applications is the first text to focus specifically on KdV solitons in the nonlinear transmission line.

Divided into three parts, the book begins with the foundational theory for KdV solitons, presents the core underlying. Solitons in Biology What Is a Soliton. by Peter S. Lomdahl A bout thirty years ago a remarkable discovery was made here in Los Alamos. Enrico Fermi, John Pasta, and Stan Ulam were calculating the flow of energy in a one.

ies of solitons involves many diﬀerent and developing areas Relevance to inverse scattering problems Strictly speaking the word Soliton (coined by Kruskal and Zabrusky in ) refers to situtations where the soliton forms part of a more complicated evo-lution involving maybe two or more solitons plus possibly plain wave com-ponents.

A good deal of the material presented in this book has been prepared by top experts in the field lecturing in January at the Winter School on Solitons in Tiruchirapalli,India.

The lectures begin at an elementary level but go on to include even the. Topics covered include mathematical and numerical aspects of solitons, as well as applications of solitons to nuclear and particle physics, cosmology, and condensed-matter physics.

The book should be of interest to researchers in any field in which solitons are encountered. Solitons and instantons play important roles both in pure and applied mathematics as well as in theoretical physics where they are related to the topological structure of the vacuum.

Twistors are a useful tool for solving nonlinear differential equations and are useful for the study of the antiself-dual Yang-Mills equations and the Einstein equations.
