  • Biaxial Nematic Liquid Crystalsby Geoffrey R. Luckhurst; Timothy J. Sluckin

    Wiley 2015; US$ 198.50

    In the nematic liquid crystal phase, rod-shaped molecules move randomly but remain essentially parallel to one another. Biaxial nematics, which were first predicted in 1970 by Marvin Freiser, have their molecules differentially oriented along two axes. They have the potential to create displays with fast switching times and may have applications in... more...

  • Introduction to Soliton Theoryby Ligia Munteanu; Stefania Donescu

    Springer 2005; US$ 279.00

    This monograph provides the application of soliton theory to solve certain problems selected from the fields of mechanics. The work is based of the authors? research, and on some specified, significant results existing in the literature. The present monograph is not a simple translation of its predecessor appeared in Publishing House of the Romanian... more...

  • Kinks and Domain Wallsby Tanmay Vachaspati

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 48.00

    Introduction to solitons for graduate students and academic researchers in theoretical physics, particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics. more...

  • Solitary Waves in Dispersive Complex Mediaby Vasily Y. Belashov; Sergey V. Vladimirov

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 269.00

    Deals with the theoretical, analytical and advanced numerical study of the structure and dynamics of one-dimensional as well as two- and three-dimensional solitons and nonlinear waves described by Korteweg-de Vries (KdV), Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (KP), nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) and derivative NLS (DNLS) classes of equations. more...

  • Solitary Waves in Fluidsby R.H.J. Grimshaw

    WIT Press 2007; US$ 162.00

    After the initial observation by John Scott Russell of a solitary wave in a canal, his insightful laboratory experiments and the subsequent theoretical work of Boussinesq, Rayleigh and Korteweg and de Vries, interest in solitary waves in fluids lapsed until the mid 1960's with the seminal paper of Zabusky and Kruskal describing the discovery of... more...

  • Optical Solitonsby J. R. Taylor

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 88.00

    Provides an overview of our current understanding of optical soliton properties introducing the subject for students and reviewing the most recent research. more...

  • Solitons and Particlesby Claudio Rebbi; Giulio Soliani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1984; US$ 168.00

    This is the most up-to-date book on solitons and is divided into two parts. Part 1: Detailed introductory lectures on different aspects of solitons plus lectures on the mathematical aspects on this subject. Part 2: Is a collection of reprints on mathematical theories of solitons, solitons in field theory, solitons as particles and their properties,... more...

  • Unitary Representations of the Poincare Group and Relativistic Wave Equationsby Y. Ohnuki

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 113.00

    This book is devoted to an extensive and systematic study on unitary representations of the Poincaré group. The Poincaré group plays an important role in understanding the relativistic picture of particles in quantum mechanics. Complete knowledge of every free particle states and their behaviour can be obtained once all the unitary irreducible representations... more...

  • Solutions In Actionby Karl Lanngren

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Solitons in Action is a collection of papers that discusses the concept of a wave packer or pulse known as a soliton. One paper reviews the development of the solitary wave concept, with emphasis on the difference between a solitary wave and a soliton. The Korteweg-deVries (KdV) equation shows the interactions between infinite sets of conservation... more...
