Summary:Soliton-based concepts open the road for newly designed laser sources, new frequency converters and high-intensity laser-material interactions. Optical solitons as stable spatial patterns of complex nonlinear systems allow for the control of the diffraction of optical beams. Solitons also prevent unwanted chaotic behavior. Thus, solitary wave physics plays a significant role from modern optical physics to optical communication, optical switching, and optical storage. The book gives an updated overview of optical solitons and can serve as a reference and guide for advanced students and scientists working in the field and related areas of science where solitons are observed
