Nonlinear Equations in Physics and Mathematics [EBook] : Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute held in Istanbul, Turkey, August 1–13, 1977 / edited by A. O. Barut.
This is the third Volume in a series of books devoted to the interdisciplinary area between mathematics and physics, all ema nating from the Advanced Study Institutes held in Istanbul in 1970, 1972 and 1977. We believe that physics and mathematics can develop best in harmony and in close communicat...
