Waves and Structures in Nonlinear Nondispersive Media: General Theory and Applications to Nonlinear Acoustics is devoted completely to nlinear structures. The general theory is given here in parallel with mathematical models. Many concrete examples illustrate the general analysis of Part I. Part II is devoted to applications to nlinear acoustics, including specific nlinear models and exact solutions, physical mechanisms of nlinearity, sawtooth-shaped wave propagation, self-action phemena, nlinear resonances and engineering application (medicine, ndestructive testing, geophysics, etc.). This book is designed for graduate and postgraduate students studying the theory of nlinear waves of various physical nature. It may also be useful as a handbook for engineers and researchers who encounter the necessity of taking nlinear wave effects into account of their work. Dr. Gurbatov S.N. is the head of Department, and Vice Rector for Research of Nizhny Novgorod State University. Dr. Rudenko O.V. is the Full member of Russian Academy of Sciences, the head of Department at Moscow University and Professor at BTH (Sweden). Dr. Saichev A.I. is the Professor at the Faculty of Radiophysics of Nizhny Novgorod State University, Professor of ETH Zurich.
