Abstract : There were a number of significant accomplishments during the past 3 years. In this period, 12 papers were published in refereed journals, 4 papers were published as chapters in books and conference proceedings, 7 papers were accepted for publication, and 28 invited lectures were presented. This research has produced a number of fundamental contributions in: nonlinear fiber optics, specifically wavelength division multiplexing, new classes of solutions to multidimensional nonlinear wave equations of physical significance, direct and inverse scattering, the propagation of magnetic spin waves in thin ferromagnetic films, and computational and effective chaos associated with a class of integrable nonlinear wave equations. A summary of this effort is contained in this report, as well as a list of all publications and invited lectures.
