This monograph offers the appliance of soliton thought to unravel yes difficulties chosen from the fields of mechanics. The paintings is predicated of the authors' learn, and on a few unique, major effects latest within the literature.

The current monograph isn't really an easy translation of its predecessor seemed in Publishing apartment of the Romanian Academy in 2002. advancements define the best way the soliton thought is utilized to resolve a few engineering difficulties. The ebook addresses concrete answer tools of yes difficulties comparable to the movement of skinny elastic rod, vibrations of preliminary deformed skinny elastic rod, the coupled pendulum oscillations, dynamics of left ventricle, temporary movement of blood in arteries, the subharmonic waves iteration in a piezoelectric plate with Cantor-like constitution, and a few difficulties regarding Tzitzeica surfaces.

This complete examine permits the readers to make connections among the soliton actual phenomenon and a few partical, engineering difficulties.

**Path Integrals and Quantum Anomalies (The International Series of Monographs on Physics)**

The Feynman course integrals have gotten more and more vital within the functions of quantum mechanics and box idea. the trail quintessential formula of quantum anomalies, (i. e. : the quantum breaking of sure symmetries), can now conceal the entire identified quantum anomalies in a coherent demeanour. during this e-book the authors offer an advent to the trail imperative approach in quantum box conception and its purposes to the research of quantum anomalies.

**Physical Problems Solved by the Phase-Integral Method**

This booklet covers the most effective approximation equipment for the theoretical research and answer of difficulties in theoretical physics and utilized arithmetic. the tactic should be utilized to any box related to moment order usual differential equations. it really is written with sensible wishes in brain, with 50 solved difficulties protecting a extensive variety of topics and making transparent which recommendations and result of the final thought are wanted in each one case.

5) or a solitonic function, sech or tanh (m # 1) (Nettel). ” This method requires brief information necessary to describe the cnoidal waves. The arc length of the ellipse is related to the integral z E ( z) (1 k 2 x 2 )dx ³ (1 x 2 ) 0 , with 0 k 1 . Another elliptical integral is given by z F ( z) ³ 0 dx 2 (1 x )(1 k 2 x 2 ) . The integrals E ( z ) and F ( z ) are Jacobi elliptic integrals of the first and the second kinds. Legendre is the first who works with these integrals, being followed by Abel (1802–1829) and Jacobi (1804–1851).

13) tan Z12 Z 4 P 2 P1 Z Z1 tan 2 . 21) is a new solution for the sine-Gordon equation, that is a two-soliton solution. 21) we have tan Z12 Z 4 P 2 P1 Z Z1 tan 2 . 23) are known as permutability theorem of Bianchi. Any proof of permutability theorem is reduced to equality Z12 Z21 . Luigi Bianchi established in 1892 that the Bäcklund transformation for the sine-Gordon equation admits a commutative property. This property leads to construction of nonlinear superposition formulae for solutions of evolution equations.

It follows that 5 5 u 1 2 z , z 0, ° tanh 2 5 ® ° 0, z t 0. 18) MATHEMATICAL METHODS FOR NONLINEAR EQUATIONS ANALYSIS Case 2. A 0, B 5, C 1 i, D 2 0, k u 51 0 . It results 5 21 sec z . 18) corresponds to an equilibrium solution. The equilibrium solution has the property 0 , lim z o0 u zz lim z o0 u z const. 18) can be written as a soliton u 5 1 sech 2 z . 2 (Satsuma) Let us consider the equation ut 3 (u 2 ) xx 16u (u ) . 21) By expressing the solution u into a Laurent series, the same procedure as above, yields to an equilibrium solution S 2 °cos x, | x | , 2 ® °¯ 0, | x |t 0.
