From the Back Cover:

Written for an interdisciplinary readership of physicists, engineers, and chemists, this book is a practical guide to the fascinating world of solitons. These waves of large amplitude propagate over long distances without dispersing and therefore show one of the most striking aspects of nonlinearity. The author addresses students, practitioners, and researchers, approaching the subject from the standpoint of applications in optics, hydrodynamics, and electrical and chemical engineering. The book also encourages the readers to perform their own experiments. Since the printing of the second edition of this book, there has been a large growth in the literature on nonlinear waves and so has the wide applicability of the subject to the physical, chemical and biological sciences. Accordingly, this third edition has been thoroughly revised. Some of the topics are brought up to date with pertinent references. Furthermore, the book now includes a completely new chapter on solitary waves in diffuse systems.

Review:

From the reviews
"In Waves Called Solitons, Michel Remoissenet stays focused on helping the reader understand what solitary waves are, to see how they maintain their integrity as they interact with one another, and to appreciate the roles that these coherent lumps of energy and information play in diverse areas of engineering, physical science, and biology. (...) this book will serve as the basic text for such an undergraduate course, introducing students to the emergence and dynamics of coherent states. I recommend it most highly." (A. Scott, SIAM Review, 2000)

"The revisions and enlargements present in the current edition make the text an even more motivating introduction to the subject of solitons." (Zentralblatt für Mathematik, 2000)

FROM REVIEWS OF PREVIOUS EDITIONS
"Unquestionably one of the most exciting introductory books to the world of Solitons. Remoissenet uses a clear presentation based on simple and pedagogical explanations motivated by a great number of experiments ... Without a doubt, this book succeeds to introduce this important field in a simple way." (PHYSICALIA)
