Provides a combination of theory and experiment, mathematics and physics with connections to engineering
Gives guidance to predicting phenomena in nonlinear and complex systems
Represents the state-of-the-art of localized excitation research
The study of nonlinear localized excitations is a long-standing challenge for research in basic and applied science, as well as engineering, due to their importance in understanding and predicting phenomena arising in nonlinear and complex systems, but also due to their potential for the development and design of novel applications. This volume is a compilation of chapters representing the current state-of-the-art on the field of localized excitations and their role in the dynamics of complex physical systems.
