Nonlinear Waves, Solitons and Chaos

by

Nonlinear Waves, Solitons and Chaos Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This revised and updated second edition of a highly successful text embraces a universal approach to three major developments in classical physics: namely, nonlinear waves, solitons, and chaos. The authors include new material on biology and laser theory, and go on to discuss important recent developments such as soliton metamorphosis. They also offer a new section on a direct method to study transverse instabilities of pulse-like structures. A comprehensive treatment of basic plasma and fluid configurations and instabilities is followed by a study of the relevant nonlinear structures. Additional key features comprise color illustrations of soliton dynamics and end-of-chapter problems. In general, it will be of value to final year undergraduates and beginning graduate students studying fluid dynamics, plasma physics and applied mathematics.

Synopsis:

The second edition of a highly successful book on nonlinear waves, solitons and chaos.

Synopsis:

'This is the only English language text at this level to embrace a universal approach to three developments in physics: nonlinear waves, solitons and chaos. The new edition has been extended so as to include applications in biology and optics and discusses recent developments in soliton dynamics.\n
