 This volume is a special issue of the Quarterly of Applied Mathematics journal. It represents the proceedings of the conference in honor of Walter Strauss's 70th birthday held at Brown University (Providence, RI) in May of 2008. The issue offers a collection of original and expository articles devoted to the study of nonlinear wave equations. The articles cover a wide range of topics, including scattering theory, dispersive waves, classical field theory, mathematical fluid mechanics, kinetic theory, and stability theory. The book offers a nice crosssection of current trends and research directions in the study of nonlinear wave equations. Published by Brown University and distributed worldwide by the American Mathematical Society. Table of Contents  Y.
