Book on nonlinear waves by Tom Bridges published by CUP

The book “Symmetry, Phase Modulation, and Nonlinear Waves” by Tom Bridges has been published by Cambridge University Press.  A link to the CUP webpage is here.  The book is an introduction to “phase modulation” in conservative systems which generalises the classical Whitham modulation theory to include dispersion and singularities while maintaining universality.  The theory shows […]
