The present book introduces and develops mathematical techniques for the treatment of nonlinear waves and singular perturbation methods at a level that is suitable for graduate students, researchers and faculty throughout the natural sciences and engineering. The practice of implementing these techniques and their value are largely realized by showing their application to problems of nonlinear wave phenomena in electronic transport in solid state materials, especially bulk semiconductors and semiconductor superlattices. The authors are recognized leaders in this field, with more than 30 combined years of contributions.

Luis L. Bonilla received his Ph.D. in physics from the Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia (UNED), Madrid, in 1981. After conducting postdoctoral research for three years at the Mathematics Department at Stanford University, he took positions as associate professor at the Universities of Sevilla and Barcelona, both Spain. In 1992, he accepted his current post of Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University Carlos III in Madrid. Professor Bonilla's research interests lie in the modeling and asymptotic analysis of nonlinear problems in condensed matter physics, including electronic and mechanical properties. He is the author and co-author of more than 180 research ...More About Luis L. Bonilla, S.W. Teitsworth
