Physics of Solitons by Thierry Dauxois

Book Description

Solitons are waves with exceptional stability properties which appear in many areas of physics. The basic properties of solitons are introduced here using examples from macroscopic physics (e.g. blood pressure pulses and fibre optical communications). The book then presents the main theoretical methods before discussing applications from solid state or atomic physics such as dislocations, excitations in spin chains, conducting polymers, ferroelectrics and Bose-Einstein condensates. Examples are also taken from biological physics and include energy transfer in proteins and DNA fluctuations. Throughout the book the authors emphasise a fresh approach to modelling nonlinearities in physics. Instead of a perturbative approach, nonlinearities are treated intrinsically and the analysis based on the soliton equations introduced in this book. Based on the authors' graduate course, this textbook gives an instructive view of the physics of solitons for students with a basic knowledge of general physics, and classical and quantum mechanics.

Books By Author Thierry Dauxois

Physics of Long-Range Interacting Systems by Thierry Dauxois Physics of Long-Range Interacting Systems, Hardback (September 2014)

An upper-level text on the physics of long-range interactions. The first two parts describe the theoretical and computational instruments needed to study both the equilibrium and dynamical properties of systems subject to long-range forces. The third part is devoted to applications of such techniques to the most relevant examples of such systems.

Physics of Solitons by Thierry Dauxois Physics of Solitons, Paperback (June 2010)

This textbook gives an instructive view of solitons and their applications for advanced students of physics.

Long-range Interacting Systems by Thierry Dauxois Long-range Interacting Systems, Hardback (January 2010)

This book collects lectures and seminars given at the Les Houches Summer School 2008 on Long-Range Interacting Systems. It reviews state-of-the-art developments in this field, looking at problems of probability, transport theory, statistical mechanics, condensed matter physics, astrophysics and cosmology, physics of plasmas, and hydrodynamics.
