Abstract:

The central theme involved in this work is the continuing study of certain fundamental features associated with the nonlinear wave propagation arising in and motivated by physical problems. The usefulness of the work is attested to by the varied applications, and wide areas of interest in physics, engineering and mathematics. The work accomplished involves wave propagation in a number of areas including fluid mechanics, plasma physics, theoretical physics, statistical mechanics, nonlinear optics, multidimensional solitons, multidimensional inverse problems, Painleve equations, direct linearizations of certain nonlinear wave equations, DBAR problems, Riemann-Hilbert boundary value problems, differential geometry, etc.
