About these proceedings


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.
