Localized States in Physics: Solitons and Patterns by Miroslaw A. Karpierz, Gaetano Assanto (auth.), Orazio

By Miroslaw A. Karpierz, Gaetano Assanto (auth.), Orazio Descalzi, Marcel Clerc, Stefania Residori, Gaetano Assanto (eds.)

Systems pushed faraway from thermodynamic equilibrium can create dissipative constructions in the course of the spontaneous breaking of symmetries. a very attention-grabbing function of those pattern-forming platforms is their tendency to provide spatially constrained states. those localized wave packets can exist as propagating entities via house and/or time. numerous examples of such structures may be handled during this booklet, together with localized states in fluids, chemical reactions on surfaces, neural networks, optical platforms, granular platforms, inhabitants types, and Bose-Einstein condensates.This e-book should still entice all physicists, mathematicians and electric engineers attracted to localization in far-from-equilibrium structures. The authors - all well-known specialists of their fields - try to accomplish a stability among theoretical and experimental concerns thereby giving an outline of attention-grabbing actual ideas, their manifestations in diversified structures, and the unconventional technical purposes at the horizon.
