Abstract : This research program involves the basic understanding and applications of nonlinear wave propagation. A number of significant results have been obtained. Contributions include the following. The analysis and computation of solitons and their interaction properties in nonlinear optical fibers; solutions and general behavior of a class of physically significant multidimensional and novel nonlinear wave equations; studies of discrete nonlinear evolution systems and numerically induced chaos in a class of integrable nonlinear systems. This report also includes a list of recent publications and preprints.
