Solitons : Interactions, Theoretical & Experimental Challenges & Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Matthew C. Williams
In mathematics and physics, a soliton is a self-reinforcing solitary wave (a wave packet or pulse) that maintains its shape while it travels at constant speed.
Solitons are caused by a cancellation of non-linear and dispersive effects in the medium.
In this book, the authors discuss the interactions and theoretical and experimental challenges of solitons.
Topics include soliton motion of electrons and its physical properties in coupled electron-phonon systems and ionic crystals; soliton excitations and its experimental evidence in molecular crystals; shapes and dynamics of semi-discrete solitons in arrayed and stacked waveguiding systems; ion-acoustic super solitons in plasma; diamond-controlled solitons and turbulence in extracellular matrix and lymphatic dynamics; and non-linear waves in strongly interacting relativistic fluids.
