By C. Rogers, W. K. Schief

This booklet describes the amazing connections that exist among the classical differential geometry of surfaces and sleek soliton concept. The authors additionally discover the vast physique of literature from the 19th and early 20th centuries by way of such eminent geometers as Bianchi, Darboux, Bäcklund, and Eisenhart on variations of privileged periods of surfaces which go away key geometric houses unchanged. well-known among those are Bäcklund-Darboux differences with their outstanding linked nonlinear superposition rules and value in soliton thought.

The nonlinear Schroedinger equation: self-focusing and wave collapse

This ebook, which has a tendency to attach mathematical effects and phenomenological modeling, should still advertise the move of data among a few of the groups all in favour of nonlinear waves. Graduate scholars and researchers within the fields of natural and utilized arithmetic, nonlinear optics, plasma physics, hydrodynamics, and magnetohydrodynamics will locate this e-book beneficial.

Spatial Audio Processing: MPEG Surround and Other Applications

This ebook collects a wealth of knowledge approximately spatial audio coding into one understandable quantity. it's a thorough connection with the 3GPP and MPEG Parametric Stereo criteria and the MPEG encompass multi-channel audio coding usual. It describes key advancements in coding innovations, that's a major consider the optimization of complex leisure, communications and sign processing functions.

In this parametrisation, ru , rv and N are all unit vectors, but ru and rv are not orthogonal. Accordingly, it proves convenient to introduce an orthonormal triad {A, B, C}, where (ru × rv ) , C=N sin ␻ = cosec ␻ rv − cot ␻ ru . 27) can now be used to obtain expressions for the derivatives of A, B and C with respect to u and v, namely      0 −␻u A A 0  B  =  ␻u 0 1/␳   B  , C u 0 −1/␳ 0 C    0 A B =  0 −(1/␳ ) sin ␻ C v 0 0 (1/␳ ) cos ␻   (1/␳ ) sin ␻ A   −(1/␳ ) cos ␻ B .

86) and ␨ is a constant. The pseudosphere is retrieved in the case ␨ = ␲/2. Here, the tangent length of the tractrix is ␳ sin ␨ and the helicoidal parameter associated with the relative rates of translation and rotation of the generating tractrix is ␳ cos ␨. 87) = 2 arctan exp ␹. 5. 5.

Likewise, the Davey-Stewartson III equation may be associated with isothermic surfaces in Minkowski space M4 . 4 turns to classical results on the transformation of conjugate nets which have importance in soliton theory. It is shown how the conjugate net equation is invariant under the so-called Fundamental Transformation which, in turn, can be decomposed into a Combescure and two radial transformations. 5, this classical result for R3 is shown to be actually valid in spaces of arbitrary dimension.
