The Legacy of the Inverse Scattering Transform in Applied Mathematics
About this Title
Jerry Bona, Roy Choudhury and David Kaup, Editors
This volume contains new developments and state-of-the-art research arising from the conference on the “Legacy of the Inverse Scattering Transform” held at Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA). Unique to this volume is the opening section, “Reviews”. This part of the book provides reviews of major research results in the inverse scattering transform (IST), on the application of IST to classical problems in differential geometry, on algebraic and analytic aspects of soliton-type equations, on a new method for studying boundary value problems for integrable partial differential equations (PDEs) in two dimensions, on chaos in PDEs, on advances in multi-soliton complexes, and on a unified approach to integrable systems via Painlevé analysis.
This conference provided a forum for general exposition and discussion of recent developments in nonlinear waves and related areas with potential applications to other fields. The book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers interested in mathematics, physics, and engineering.
Graduate students and researchers interested in mathematics, physics, and engineering.
