This volume is devoted to the exciting topic of dissipative solitons, i.e. pulses or spatially localised waves in systems exhibiting gain and loss. Examples are laser systems, nonlinear resonators and optical transmission lines. The physical principles and mathematical concepts are explained in a clear and concise way, suitable for students and young researchers. The similarities and differences in the notion of a soliton between dissipative systems and Hamiltonian and integrable systems are discussed, and many examples are given. The contributions are written by the world's leading experts in the field, making it a unique exposition of this emerging topic.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This edited volume contains seventeen chapters contributed by thirty four authors, indisputably acknowledged and internationally recognized experts in the rapidly expanding field of dissipative solitons. ... Each chapter is extremely well referenced and the chosen topics ... does provide an excellent overview and forms a comprehensive introduction to this subject in this research level text. It provides an excellent reference for anyone wishing to look further into this fascinating aspect of soliton behaviour." (J. R. Taylor, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 47 (1), 2006)
