Mathematical Modeling and Computation 16
Nonlinear Waves in Integrable and Nonintegrable Systems presents cutting-edge developments in the theory and experiments of nonlinear waves. Its comprehensive coverage of analytical and numerical methods for nonintegrable systems is the first of its kind. The book
• also covers in great depth analytical methods for integrable equations;
• comprehensively describes efficient numerical methods for all major aspects of nonlinear wave computations;
• contains a chapter on nonlinear waves in periodic media, where many novel phenomena due to bandgap guidance are revealed and thoroughly analyzed;
• presents the latest experiments on nonlinear waves in optical systems and Bose–Einstein condensates, especially in periodic media; and
• contains a large number of simple and efficient MATLAB® codes for various types of nonlinear wave computations, which readers can easily adapt to solve their own problems. The codes can also be found on an associated Web page.
This book is intended for researchers and graduate students working in applied mathematics and various physical subjects, such as nonlinear optics, Bose–Einstein condensates, and fluid dynamics, where nonlinear wave phenomena arise.
