#### 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...

#### Dispersion Decay and Scattering Theory

Wiley 2014; US$ 100.95A simplified, yet rigorous treatment of scattering theory methods and their applications Dispersion Decay and Scattering Theory provides thorough, easy-to-understand guidance on the application of scattering theory methods to modern problems in mathematics, quantum physics, and mathematical physics. Introducing spectral methods with applications... more...

#### The Dirac Equation and its Solutions

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 182.00The Dirac equation is of fundamental importance for relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics, representing the one-particle wave equation of motion for electrons in an external electromagnetic field. In this monograph, all propagators of a particle, i.e., the various Green's functions, are constructed in a certain way... more...

#### 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...

#### Nematicons

Wiley 2012; US$ 150.00A pioneer in the field presents the first book on nematicons, spatial optical solitons in nematic liquid crystals Little more than a decade after they were first demonstrated, nematicons have become an important area of research worldwide. This wide-ranging introduction is the first comprehensive collection of scientific work on optical spatial... more...

#### Electrical Solitons

CRC Press 2010; US$ 121.95I Electrical Solitons: Theory Introduction The "Solitons" A Brief Overview and History of the Soliton The KdV Soliton The Solitary Wave Solution The Periodic Soliton: The Cnoidal Wave Solution Transient Dynamics of the KdV The Heart of the Soliton: Inverse Scattering Inverse Scattering Method A Math Problem... more...

#### Waves and Oscillations

Oxford University Press, USA 2010; US$ 74.99Waves and oscillations permeate virtually every field of current physics research, are central to chemistry, and are essential to much of engineering. Furthermore, the concepts and mathematical techniques used for serious study of waves and oscillations form the foundation for quantum mechanics. Once they have mastered these ideas in a classical context,... more...

#### Quasilinear Hyperbolic Systems, Compressible Flows, and Waves

CRC Press 2010; US$ 121.95Hyperbolic Systems of Conservation Laws Preliminaries Examples Scalar Hyperbolic Equations in One Dimension Breakdown of Smooth Solutions Entropy Conditions Revisited Riemann Problem for Nonconvex Flux Function Irreversibility Asymptotic Behavior Hyperbolic Systems in One Space Dimension Genuine Nonlinearity Weak Solutions and Jump... more...

#### The Versatile Soliton

Springer 2010; US$ 89.99If you have not already heard about solitons, you will sooner or later encounter them. The soliton, a solitary wave impulse preserving its shape and strikingly similar to a particle, is one of the most fascinating and beautiful phenomena in the physics of nonlinear waves. In this engaging book, the concept of the soliton is traced from the beginning... more...

#### Solitons, Instantons, and Twistors

Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 64.99Most nonlinear differential equations arising in natural sciences admit chaotic behaviour and cannot be solved analytically. Integrable systems lie on the other extreme. They possess regular, stable, and well behaved solutions known as solitons and instantons. These solutions play important roles in pure and applied mathematics as well as in theoretical... more...
