Item description for Waves Called Solitons: Concepts and Experiments (Advanced Texts in Physics) by Michel Remoissenet...

Written for an interdisciplinary readership of physicists, engineers, and chemists, this book is a practical guide to the fascinating world of solitons. These waves of large amplitude propagate over long distances without dispersing and therefore show one of the most striking aspects of nonlinearity. The author addresses students, practitioners, and researchers, approaching the subject from the standpoint of applications in optics, hydrodynamics, and electrical and chemical engineering. The book also encourages readers to perform their own experiments. Since the printing of the second edition of this book, there has been a large growth in the literature on nonlinear waves and so has the wide applicability of the subject to the physical, chemical and biological sciences. This third edition has been thoroughly revised. Some of the topics are brought up to date with pertinent references. Furthermore, the book now includes a completely new chapter on solitary waves in diffuse systems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Waves Called Solitons: Concepts and Experiments (Advanced Texts in Physics)?

While sounding like the latest episode from Power Rangers, this book is actually a translation of work done in the early 90's that shared it's place in the sun. The authors use Discrete Math arguements to link Hirato's equation to Pluckers equation on transformational evolution. This basic area links self organizational theory, deterministic chaos, cubic schrodeger and Kortig deVrie into a concept almost reminiscent of Hadamards work on odd order integers in cylindrical differential equations. (Dirac's sea of holes, with Fermions and Bosons linked via a Jungian archetype to the Beatles sea of holes in the Yellow Submarine.) Seriously though this area is almost untouched although brushed up against many times,(Stokes, Kortig,Bossinesq,etc.) The concept of self similarties on infintesimal differential equations producing evolution equations shows up in many forms(check Herman Haken's works). The reviewer first became aware when plotting in Mathcad or Matlab the Bessel Airy equations and the explicit form of the deep water equation. (both indentical) with similarites showing up in 1/3's. Called solitons or n-solitons the symmetries are amazing! At first the reviewer thought they were Moire Patterns due to aliasing, but after repeated math tests, confirmed the patterns. Spectral analysis, and wavelet analysis showed their self organized similarites explicitly,both in polynomial content and best basis. Check this out using Matlab's System Identification toolbox after converting the system to theta format. (this allows conversion to state systems and characteristic equations that are part of this story).
