Vortices in Nonlinear Fields

From Liquid Crystals to Superfluids, From Non-Equilibrium Patterns to Cosmic Strings

L. M. Pismen

A Clarendon Press Publication

International Series of Monographs on Physics

Unique in its multidisciplinary scope, this book considers from a unified point of view the structure and dynamics of vortices in a variety of nonlinear field models with spontaneously broken symmetry. The theory has wide applications, including superfluids, superconductors, rotating spiral waves, and relativistic string theories.
