**Nonlinear Wave Equations**

by Heinz-Jürgen Schmidt

**Publisher**: University of Osnabrück 2003**Number of pages**: 78

**Description**:

What are the physical origins of nonlinearity? We will have to give different answers depending on the case under consideration. This text aims at providing a general physical background rather than dealing with the details of the various projects.
