This textbook is an introduction to the theory of solitons in the physical sciences.

The Applied Mathematics, Modelling, and Computational Science (AMMCS) conference aims to promote interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The contributions in this volume cover the latest research in mathematical and computational sciences, modeling, and simulation as well as their applications in natural and social sciences, engineering and technology, industry, and finance. The 2013 conference, the second in a series of AMMCS meetings, was held August 26—30 and organized in cooperation with AIMS and SIAM, with support from the Fields Institute in Toronto, and Wilfrid Laurier University. There were many young scientists at AMMCS-2013, both as presenters and as organizers. This proceedings contains refereed papers contributed by the participants of the AMMCS-2013 after the conference. This volume is suitable for researchers and graduate students, mathematicians and engineers, industrialists, and anyone who would like to delve into the interdisciplinary research of applied and computational mathematics and its areas of applications.

"The book is intended for a beginning graduate course on asymptotic analysis in applied mathematics and is aimed at students of pure and applied mathematics as well as science and engineering. The basic prerequisite is a background in differential equations, linear algebra, advanced calculus, and complex variables at the level of introductory undergraduate courses on these subjects."--BOOK JACKET.

Filling the gap between the mathematical literature and applications to domains, the authors have chosen to address the problem of wave collapse by several methods ranging from rigorous mathematical analysis to formal aymptotic expansions and numerical simulations.

Passive Pulse Generators are circuits used to generate very high power electrical pulses. Such pulses find application in a wide range of disciplines, including plasma generation, gas laser physics and radar. * Includes two introductory chapters on techniques used to analyse passive pulse generators * Includes worked examples A valuable reference resource for specialist undergraduates, post graduate students and researchers active in the field og pulsed power and areas where pulsed power is applied, including physicists, engineers and those with an interest in waste and materials processing.

This text considers classical and modern problems in linear and non-linear water-wave theory.
