Solitary Waves in Dispersive Complex Media: Theory, by Vasily Y. Belashov, Sergey V. Vladimirov

By Vasily Y. Belashov, Sergey V. Vladimirov

This booklet is dedicated to 1 of the main attention-grabbing and swiftly constructing parts of recent nonlinear physics and arithmetic - the theoretical, analytical and complicated numerical examine of the constitution and dynamics of one-dimensional in addition to - and 3-dimensional solitons and nonlinear waves defined via Korteweg-de Vries (KdV), Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (KP), nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) and by-product NLS (DNLS) sessions of equations. distinct cognizance is paid to generalizations (relevant to varied complicated actual media) of those equations, accounting for higher-order dispersion corrections, effect of dissipation, instabilities, and stochastic fluctuations of the wave fields. The e-book addresses researchers operating within the conception and numerical simulations of dispersive complicated media in such fields as hydrodynamics, plasma physics, and aerodynamics. it's going to even be important as a reference paintings for graduate scholars in physics and arithmetic.

Discrete and continuous nonlinear Schroedinger systems by M. J. Ablowitz, B. Prinari, A. D. Trubatch

By M. J. Ablowitz, B. Prinari, A. D. Trubatch

During the last thirty years major development has been made within the research of nonlinear waves--including "soliton equations", a category of nonlinear wave equations that come up usually in such components as nonlinear optics, fluid dynamics, and statistical physics. The huge curiosity during this box could be traced to knowing "solitons" and the linked improvement of a mode of answer termed the inverse scattering rework (IST). The IST strategy applies to non-stop and discrete nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations of scalar and vector kind. This paintings offers a close mathematical examine of the scattering concept, bargains soliton options, and analyzes either scalar and vector soliton interactions. The authors offer complex scholars and researchers with an intensive and self-contained presentation of the IST as utilized to nonlinear Schrödinger structures.

    A Shock-Fitting Primer (Chapman & Hall CRC Applied by Manuel D. Salas

    By Manuel D. Salas

    A defining characteristic of nonlinear hyperbolic equations is the incidence of outrage waves. whereas the preferred shock-capturing tools are effortless to enforce, shock-fitting innovations give you the so much actual effects. A Shock-Fitting Primer provides the right kind numerical remedy of outrage waves and different discontinuities.

    The publication starts off via recounting the occasions that bring about our realizing of the speculation of concern waves and the early advancements concerning their computation. After providing the most shock-fitting rules within the context of an easy scalar equation, the writer applies Colombeau’s conception of generalized capabilities to the Euler equations to illustrate how the idea recovers recognized effects and to supply an in-depth figuring out of the character of leap stipulations. He then extends the shock-fitting suggestions formerly mentioned to the one-dimensional and quasi-one-dimensional Euler equations in addition to two-dimensional flows. the ultimate bankruptcy explores latest and destiny advancements in shock-fitting equipment in the framework of unstructured grid methods.

    Throughout the textual content, the strategies constructed are illustrated with a number of examples of various complexity. at the accompanying CD-ROM, MATLAB® codes function concrete examples of ways to enforce the information mentioned within the book.
