By P. L. Sachdev

This monograph bargains with Burgers' equation and its generalisations. Such equations describe a wide selection of nonlinear diffusive phenomena, for example, in nonlinear acoustics, laser physics, plasmas and atmospheric physics. The Burgers equation additionally has mathematical curiosity as a canonical nonlinear parabolic differential equation that may be precisely linearised. it really is heavily regarding equations that show soliton behaviour and its research has helped elucidate different such nonlinear behaviour. The process followed this is utilized mathematical. the writer discusses absolutely the mathematical homes of ordinary nonlinear diffusion equations, and contrasts them with these of Burgers' equation. Of specific mathematical curiosity is the remedy of self-similar ideas as intermediate asymptotics for a wide classification of preliminary worth difficulties whose options evolve into self-similar varieties. this can be accomplished either analytically and numerically.
