#### Gravitational Solitons

Cambridge University Press 2001; US$ 62.00This 2001 book explains the construction of exact soliton solutions to Einstein's theory of gravity. more...

#### 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$ 90.00Comprehensive 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...

#### Solitary Waves in Dispersive Complex Media

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 224.42This book is devoted to one of the most interesting and rapidly developing areas of modern nonlinear physics and mathematics – theoretical, analytical andnumerical,studyofthestructureanddynamicsofone-dimensionalaswell as two- and three-dimensional solitons and nonlinear wave packets described by the Korteweg–de Vries (KdV), Kadomtsev–Petviashvili (KP),... more...

#### Soliton Management in Periodic Systems

Springer US 2006; US$ 159.31During 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$ 141.73GU Chaohao The soliton theory is an important branch of nonlinear science. On one hand, it describes various kinds of stable motions appearing in - ture, such as solitary water wave, solitary signals in optical ?bre etc., and has many applications in science and technology (like optical signal communication). On the other hand, it gives many e?ective... 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...
