Nonlinear Physics (Solitons, Chaos, Localization)
by Nikos Theodorakopoulos

Publisher: Universitaet Konstanz 2006
Number of pages: 181

Description:
This set of lectures describes some of the basic concepts mainly from the angle of condensed matter / statistical mechanics, an area which provided an impressive list of nonlinearly governed phenomena over the last fifty years - starting with the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam numerical experiment and its subsequent interpretation by Zabusky and Kruskal in terms of solitons.
