Publisher: Universitaet Konstanz
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.
