#### Strain Solitons in Solids and How to Construct Them

CRC Press 2001; US$ 172.95Although the theory behind solitary waves of strain shows that they hold significant promise in nondestructive testing and a variety of other applications, an enigma has long persisted-the absence of observable elastic solitary waves in practice. Inspired by this apparent contradiction, Strain Solitons in Solids and How to Construct Them refines the... more...

#### The Direct Method in Soliton Theory

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 112.00Account of method of solving soliton equations by the inventor of the method. more...

#### Topological Solitons

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 88.00Comprehensive survey of static topological solitons and their dynamical interactions, for graduates and researchers. more...

#### Introduction to non-Kerr Law Optical Solitons

CRC Press 2006; US$ 125.95Despite remarkable developments in the field, a detailed treatment of non-Kerr law media has not been published. Introduction to non-Kerr Law Optical Solitons is the first book devoted exclusively to optical soliton propagation in media that possesses non-Kerr law nonlinearities. After an introduction to the basic features of fiber-optic communications,... more...

#### Soliton Management in Periodic Systems

Springer US 2006; US$ 169.00During the past ten years, there has been intensive development in theoretical and experimental research of solitons in periodic media. This book provides a unique and informative account of the state-of-the-art in the field. The volume opens with a review of the existence of robust solitary pulses in systems built as a periodic concatenation... more...

#### Darboux Transformations in Integrable Systems

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 189.00Presents the Darboux transformations in matrix form and provides algebraic algorithms for constructing the explicit solutions. This work elucidates the behavior of simple and multi-solutions, even in multi-dimensional cases. It contains many results that were obtained by the authors in the past few years. more...

#### Solitary Waves in Dispersive Complex Media

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 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...

#### Optical Solitons

Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 118.00The current research into solitons and their use in fiber optic communications is very important to the future of communications. Since the advent of computer networking and high speed data transmission technology people have been striving to develop faster and more reliable communications media. Optical pulses tend to broaden over relatively short... more...

#### Topics in Soliton Theory

Elsevier Science 1991; US$ 72.95When soliton theory, based on water waves, plasmas, fiber optics etc., was developing in the 1960-1970 era it seemed that perhaps KdV (and a few other equations) were really rather special in the set of all interesting partial differential equations. As it turns out, although integrable systems are still special, the mathematical interaction of integrable... more...

#### Supersymmetric Solitons

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 116.00This book summarizes major advances in critical solitons in supersymmetric theories and their implications, for researchers. more...
