Solitons and Nonlinear Waves in Periodic Complex Structures (SYSN)
Spatial structures like solitons and vortices appearing in nonlinear media
are a key for the understanding of complex effects in physics and related
fields in science. In recent years fully new experimental systems in optics
and atomic physics (e.g. BEC) as well as new theoretical approaches led to a
much deeper understanding of the underlying physics of nonlinear media in general.
This paves the way towards a fascinating area of fundamental physics and
important applications in future.
The goal of this symposium is to bring together scientists from different areas,
mainly nonlinear optics and quantum optics and to show up similarities and
differences of nonlinear phenomena like solitons and vortices in these branches.
