**Nonlinear Physics (Solitons, Chaos, Localization)**

by Nikos Theodorakopoulos

**Publisher**: Universitaet Konstanz 2006**Number of pages**: 181

**Description**:

This set of lectures describes some of the basic concepts mainly from the angle of condensed matter / statistical mechanics, an area which provided an impressive list of nonlinearly governed phenomena over the last fifty years - starting with the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam numerical experiment and its subsequent interpretation by Zabusky and Kruskal in terms of solitons.
