Since the Schools on Nonlinear Physics in Gorky have been a meeting place for Soviet scientists working in this field. Instead of producing for the first time English proceedings it has been decided to present a good cross section of nonlinear physics in the USSR. Thus the participants at theBrand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Fluctuations and Non-linear Wave Interactions in Plasmas talks about a theory of fluctuations in a homogenous plasma. The title takes into consideration non-linear wave interactions. The text first presents the statistical description of plasma, and then proceeds to .

by Mitsuhiro Tanaka (Author), Sanichiro Yoshida (Editor) This is an introductory book about nonlinear waves. It focuses on two properties that various different wave phenomena have in common, the “nonlinearity” and “dispersion”, and explains them in a style that is . '[This] is an up-to-date teaching resource that will prepare students for work in nonlinear waves as the subject appears today in applications, especially in nonlinear optics. It is clear that Mark Ablowitz's book is a welcome addition to the literature that will be particularly useful to anyone planning a course on nonlinear waves.'Cited by:

Linear and Nonlinear Waves (Pure and Applied Mathematics: A Wiley Series of Texts, Monographs and Tracts series) by G. B. Whitham. Now in an accessible paperback edition, this classic work is just as relevant as when it first appeared in , due to the increased use of nonlinear waves. The first volume starts with a historical overview of nonlinear dynamics from Poincare to the present day and touches topics like attractors, nonlinear oscillators and waves, turbulence, pattern Read more.

Book Description Presents developments in the theory and experiments of nonlinear waves for researchers and graduate students. It is the first of its kind to offer comprehensive coverage of analytical and numerical methods for non-integrable systems. It also goes into great depth on a wide range of analytical methods for integrable by: This revised and updated second edition of a highly successful book is the only text at this level to embrace a universal approach to three major developments in classical physics; namely nonlinear waves, solitons and chaos.3/5(2).

Nonlinear Waves, Solitons and Chaos Currently unavailable. This is the only book at this level to embrace a universal approach to three major developments in classical physics, namely nonlinear waves, solitons and chaos.3/5(2).

About this book Now in an accessible paperback edition, this classic work is just as relevant as when it first appeared indue to the increased use of nonlinear waves. It covers the behavior of waves in two parts, with the first part addressing hyperbolic waves and the second addressing dispersive waves.

Whitham's book on linear (e.g., sine waves) and nonlinear (e.g., solitons and shocks) waves is a very thorough and well written narrative of the various manifestations of the fluctuations we call waves/5(10).

Non-Linear Waves in Dispersive Media introduces the theory behind such topic as the gravitational waves on water surfaces. Some limiting cases of the theory, wherein proof of an asymptotic class is necessary and generated, are also provided. Non linear waves book The first section of the book discusses the notion of linear Edition: 1.

The Boussinesq equation is the first model of surface waves in shallow water that considers the nonlinearity and the dispersion and their interaction as a reason for wave stability known as the Boussinesq paradigm.

This balance bears solitary waves that behave like quasi-particles. At present, there are some Boussinesq-like equations. This book brings together interdisciplinary researchers working in the field of nonlinear water waves, whose contributions range from survey articles to new research results which address a variety of aspects in nonlinear water waves.

Plasma Electrodynamics, Volume 2: Non-Linear Theory and Fluctuations deals with the theory of nonlinear waves in a collisionless plasma, including the quasilinear theory, the theory of plasma turbulence, and the theory of electromagnetic fluctuations in a plasma.

Experiments and theory have rapidly progressed on nonlinear optical extreme waves, showing that guided wave nonlinear optics and fiber lasers provide a relatively simple, accessible and controllable test bed for the observations and accurate statistical studies of extreme wave phenomena that obey the same universal rules, which apply to a large ensemble of different physical systems.

Some limiting cases of the theory, wherein proof of an asymptotic class is necessary and generated, are also provided. The first section of the book.

It should be noted that non-linear optics is the field, where all soliton features are exhibited to a great extent. This book had been designed as the tutorial to the theory of non-linear waves in optics. The first version was projected as the book covering all the problems in this field, both analytical and numerical methods, and results as well.

Introduction This book addresses the fascinating phenomena associated with nonlinear waves and spatio-temporal patterns. These appear almost everywhere in nature from sand bed forms to brain patterns, and yet their understanding still presents fundamental scientific challenges.

Now in an accessible paperback edition, this classic work is ju /5(7). (subscripts denote partial derivatives). This is the wave equation in one (spatial) dimension. The assumption that one can add the waves together agrees with the linearity of the wave equation; any linear combination of solutions of () is also a solution of ().

A better way of deriving the wave equation is to start from physical Size: 1MB. equation, the semilinear wave equation, the Korteweg-de Vries equation, and the wave maps equation.

These four equations are of course only a very small sample of the nonlinear dispersive equations studied in the literature, but they are reasonably representative in that they showcase many of the techniques used for more general.

Book Description. This work examines the mathematical aspects of nonlinear wave propagation, emphasizing nonlinear hyperbolic problems. It introduces the tools that are most effective for exploring the problems of local and global existence, singularity formation, and large-time behaviour of solutions, and for the study of perturbation methods.

This title will be released on. This book focuses on nonlinear wave equations, which are of considerable significance from both physical and theoretical perspectives.
