about

The sine-Gordon model is a ubiquitous model of Mathematical Physics with a wide range of applications extending from coupled torsion pendula and Josephson junction arrays to gravitational and high-energy physics models. The purpose of this book is to present a summary of recent developments in this field, incorporating both introductory background material, but also with a strong view towards modern applications, recent experiments, developments regarding the existence, stability, dynamics and asymptotics of nonlinear waves that arise in the model. This book is of particular interest to a wide range of researchers in this field, but serves as an introductory text for young researchers and students interested in the topic. The book consists of well-selected thematic chapters on diverse mathematical and physical aspects of the equation carefully chosen and assigned.

Editorial Reviews

"With the emphasis on the applications, the goal of the authors is to highlight a few important aspects of the sine-Gordon story in the form of concise mini-reviews. . any students and researchers interested in the integrable world may find enough motivations and backround material for further study of the dynamical systems admitting soliton solutions." (Béla Gábor Pusztai, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 82 (1-2), 2016)
