About this book

Soliton-based concepts open the road for newly designed laser sources, new frequency converters and high-intensity laser-material interactions. Optical solitons as stable spatial patterns of complex nonlinear systems allow for the control of the diffraction of optical beams. Solitons also prevent unwanted chaotic behavior. Thus, solitary wave physics plays a significant role from modern optical physics to optical communication, optical switching, and optical storage. The book gives an updated overview of optical solitons and can serve as a reference and guide for advanced students and scientists working in the field and related areas of science where solitons are observed.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book is the volume 82 in Springer Series ‘Optical Sciences’, which includes invited contributions from the majority of world leading experts and pioneers in the field. … The content of the book covers a wide spectrum of issues concerning the propagation of spatial solitons, ranging from the most challenging theoretical problems to the most exciting experimental achievements to date." (Andrei Mourachkine, Physicalia, Vol. 38 (4), 2002)
