Nonlinear Wave Equations
by

Publisher: University of Osnabrück
Number of pages: 78

Description:
What are the physical origins of nonlinearity? We will have to give different answers depending on the case under consideration. This text aims at providing a general physical background rather than dealing with the details of the various projects.
