#### Biaxial Nematic Liquid Crystals

Wiley 2015; US$ 198.50In 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 Theory

Springer 2005; US$ 279.00This 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 Walls

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 48.00Introduction to solitons for graduate students and academic researchers in theoretical physics, particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics. more...

#### Solitary Waves in Dispersive Complex Media

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

WIT Press 2007; US$ 162.00After 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 Solitons

Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 88.00Provides an overview of our current understanding of optical soliton properties introducing the subject for students and reviewing the most recent research. more...

#### Solitons and Particles

World Scientific Publishing Company 1984; US$ 168.00This 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 Equations

World Scientific Publishing Company 1988; US$ 113.00This 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...

#### Optical Solitons - Proceedings of the Workshop on Optical Solitons

World Scientific Publishing Company 1991; US$ 139.00#### Solutions In Action

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95Solitons 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...
