#### Biaxial Nematic Liquid Crystals

Wiley 2015; US$ 198.50Liquid Crystals are a state of matter that have properties between those of conventional liquid and those of a solid crystal. Thermotropic liquid crystals react to changes in temperature or, in some cases, pressure. The reaction of lyotropic liquid crystals, which are used in the manufacture of soaps and detergents, depends on the type of solvent they... more...

#### Dispersion Decay and Scattering Theory

Wiley 2014; US$ 100.95ALEXANDER KOMECH, PhD, is Professor and Senior Scientist in the Department of Mathematics at Vienna University and the Institute for Information Transmission Problems at the Russian Academy of Sciences. He is the author of more than 100 published journal articles. ELENA KOPYLOVA, PhD, is Senior Scientist in the Department of Mathematics at Vienna... 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$ 150.00The first book of its kind to introduce the fundamentals, basic features and models, potential applications and novel phenomena and its important applications in liquid crystal technology. Recognized leader in the field Gaetano Assanto outlines the peculiar characteristics of nematicons and the promise they have for the future growth of this captivating... more...

#### Electrical Solitons

Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 115.95The dominant medium for soliton propagation in electronics, nonlinear transmission line (NLTL) has found wide application as a testbed for nonlinear dynamics and KdV phenomena as well as for practical applications in ultra-sharp pulse/edge generation and novel nonlinear communication schemes in electronics. While many texts exist covering solitons... 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

Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 115.95Filled with practical examples, Quasilinear Hyperbolic Systems, Compressible Flows, and Waves presents a self-contained discussion of quasilinear hyperbolic equations and systems with applications. It emphasizes nonlinear theory and introduces some of the most active research in the field. After linking continuum mechanics and quasilinear partial... 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...
