Solitons in Photonic and Quantum Systems

Jason W. Fleischer

Aspects of solitons in homogeneous and discrete (lattice) systems will be considered, with examples from a variety of fields. Physical insight will be stressed throughout, and particular emphasis will be given to the relation between optics/photonics and correlated quantum systems. Topics to be covered include the propagation of beams and pulses in linear and nonlinear media, waveguides and WG coupling, scalar and vector solitons, soliton interactions, solitons in photonics, and solitons in noisy and statistical systems.
