The Encyclopedia of Nonlinear Science provides complete coverage at the introductory level of the field of nonlinear science, from intuitive descriptions to mathematical concepts over a wide range of subject matters.
Comprised of 439 essays arranged alphabetically in one large volume, this Encyclopedia covers subjects such as chaos and turbulence in addition to the formation (emergence) and dynamics of coherent structure (solitons, nerve impulses, shock waves, tornados, and so on). Entries describe basic phenomena that arise in mathematics; theoretical and applied physics; chemistry; physical chemistry; electrical, chemical, and mechanical engineering; atmospheric and earth sciences; biology; economics; and neuroscience; among several others. Some of the entries are theoretical in nature, while others present phenomena in intuitive terms, but all are introductory, leading the reader toward further insights in the are of interest.
Designed for undergraduate and graduate students and researchers as well as established nonlinear scientists interested in applying methods outside of their own specialized areas, this is the definitive reference to all aspects of nonlinear science
