Nonlinear Waves



The book Nonlinear Waves edited by L. Debnath is a collection of papers on the theory and applications of nonlinear wave phenomena. The book is an outgrowth of an NSF-CBMS regional research conference on nonlinear waves and integrable systems, convened in June, 1982 at East Carolina University. The book aims at bringing together recent developments on the theory of nonlinear waves and solitons, with selective applications in the areas of fluid dynamics and plasma physics. The field had an explosive growth during the last decade, and it is, correctly, expected that it will exert a major influence on future research directions of many fields of physics and engineering.
