Tsunami and Nonlinear Waves

Editors: Kundu, Anjan (Ed.)

  • Includes specific measurements data from the 2004 tsunami, with emphasis on the nature of the waves themselves and their links to nonlinear phenomena
  • Nonlinear dynamics and integrable systems are used to develop new concepts for more accurate prediction

About the authors

Anjan Kundu is a Senior Professor in the Theory Group of the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Calcutta. After obtaining his PhD degree from the PFU Moscow in 1981 he joined JINR Dubna (Moscow) for postdoctoral research. He has been a Humboldt Foundation (Germany) Scholar since 1993 and a Senior Associate of ICTP (Trieste, Italy) from 2006. His major research interests are focused on mathematical physics related to nonlinear systems and in particular in Quantum and classical integrable systems, quantum group, nonlinear dynamics, soliton physics and field models with topological charges etc. He has published more than 100 research papers in international journals and conference proceedings and he edited a book on quantum and classical nonlinear integrable systems, from IOP (UK), in 2003.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is a collection of articles on nonlinear water waves … . All in all, this is a good book for both specialists and others who are eager to learn about nonlinear aspects of tsunami problems and nonlinear waves in general." (M. Sinan Ozeren, Surveys in Geophysics, Vol. 29, 2008)

“A number of international conferences were held in the years following this tsunami where the results of the recent surveys and studies could be presented and documented in proceedings volumes. The book edited by Anjan Kundu is such a volume, but it also contains papers not presented at the conference. … the book is well organized, and the text and equations are clear. … a worthwhile addition to a research library used by tsunami scientists and students interested in its specific topics.” (Harold Mofjeld, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, May, 2009)
