#### Introduction to Soliton Theory: Applications to Mechanics

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 173.94This monograph is planned to provide the application of the soliton theory to solve certain practical problems selected from the fields of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics and biomechanics. The work is based mainly on the authors’ research carried out at their home institutes, and on some specified, significant results existing in the published literature.... more...

#### Kinks and Domain Walls

Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 46.00An introduction to solitons for graduate students and academic researchers in theoretical physics, particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics. more...

#### Vibrations and Waves

Wiley 2013; US$ 62.00 US$ 55.80This introductory text emphasises physical principles, rather than the mathematics. Each topic begins with a discussion of the physical characteristics of the motion or system. The mathematics is kept as clear as possible, and includes elegant mathematical descriptions where possible. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the book... 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...

#### Relativistic Quantum Mechanics

Cambridge University Press 1998; US$ 86.00Graduate text introducing relativistic quantum theory, emphasising important applications in condensed matter physics. more...

#### Recent Progress in Coupled Cluster Methods

Springer Netherlands 2010; US$ 311.96The recent progress and future trends in coupled cluster methodology are presented in this comprehensive overview. Written by practitioners in the field, each chapter emphasizes both fundamentals and related methodology in an accessible style and format. more...

#### Solitons and Particles

World Scientific Publishing Company 1984; US$ 44.00 US$ 40.04This 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$ 35.00 US$ 31.85This 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$ 43.00 US$ 39.13#### 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...
