Nature provides many examples of coherent nonlinearstructures and waves, and these have been observed andstudied in various fields ranging from fluids and plasmasthrough solid-state physics to chemistry and biology. Theseproceedings reflect the remarkable process in understandingand modeling nonlinear phenomena in various systems that hasrecently been made.Experimental, numerical, and theoreticalactivities interact in various studies that are presentedaccording to the following classification: magnetic andoptical systems, biosystems and molecular systems, latticeexcitations and localized modes, two-dimensional structures,theoretical physics, and mathematical methods.The book addresses researchers and graduate students frombiology, engineering, mathematics, and physics.
