Nature provides many examples of coherent nonlinear
structures and waves, and these have been observed and
studied in various fields ranging from fluids and plasmas
through solid-state physics to chemistry and biology. These
proceedings reflect the remarkable process in understanding
and modeling nonlinear phenomena in various systems that has
recently been made.Experimental, numerical, and theoretical
activities interact in various studies that are presented
according to the following classification: magnetic and
optical systems, biosystems and molecular systems, lattice
excitations and localized modes, two-dimensional structures,
theoretical physics, and mathematical methods.
The book addresses researchers and graduate students from
biology, engineering, mathematics, and physics.
