About this Book

This landmark book deals with nonlinear normal modes (NNMs) and nonlinear mode localization. Offers an analysis which enables the study of various nonlinear phenomena having no counterpart in linear theory. On a more theoretical level, the concept of NNMs will be shown to provide an excellent framework for understanding a variety of distinctively nonlinear phenomena such as mode bifurcations and standing or traveling solitary waves.
