 Publisher's Summary
 Bringing together 18 chapters written by leading experts indynamical systems, operator theory, partial differential equations, and solid and fluid mechanics, this book presents stateoftheartapproaches to a wide spectrum of new and challenging stabilityproblems. Nonlinear Physical Systems: Spectral Analysis, Stability andBifurcations focuses on problems of spectral analysis, stabilityand bifurcations arising in the nonlinear partial differentialequations of modern physics. Bifurcations and stability of solitarywaves, geometrical optics stability analysis in hydro andmagnetohydrodynamics, and dissipationinduced instabilities aretreated with the use of the theory of Krein and Pontryagin space, index theory, the theory of multiparameter eigenvalue problems andmodern asymptotic and perturbative approaches. Each chapter contains mechanical and physical examples, and thecombination of advanced material and more tutorial elements makesthis book attractive for both experts and nonspecialists keen toexpand their knowledge on modern methods and trends in stabilitytheory.

Kirillov has been a Research Fellow at theMagnetoHydrodynamics Division of the HelmholtzZentrumDresdenRossendorf in Germany since 2011. His research interestsinclude nonconservative stability problems of structural mechanicsand physics, perturbation theory of nonselfadjoint boundaryeigenvalue problems, magnetohydrodynamics, frictioninducedoscillations, dissipationinduced instabilities and nonHermitianproblems of optics and microwave physics. Since 2013 he has servedas an Associate Editor for the journal Frontiers in MathematicalPhysics. Dmitry E. Pelinovsky has been Professor at McMaster University inCanada since 2000. His research profile includes work withnonlinear partial differential equations, discrete dynamicalsystems, spectral theory, integrable systems, and numericalanalysis. He served as the guest editor of the special issue of thejournals Chaos in 2005 and Applicable Analysis in 2010. He is anAssociate Editor of the journal Communications in Nonlinear Scienceand Numerical Simulations. This book is devoted to the problems of spectral analysis, stability and bifurcations arising from the nonlinear partialdifferential equations of modern physics. Leading experts indynamical systems, operator theory, partial differential equations, and solid and fluid mechanics present stateoftheart approachesto a wide spectrum of new challenging stability problems.Bifurcations and stability of solitary waves, geometrical opticsstability analysis in hydro and magnetohydrodynamics anddissipationinduced instabilities will be treated with the use ofthe theory of Krein and Pontryagin space, index theory, the theoryof multiparameter eigenvalue problems and modern asymptotic andperturbative approaches. All chapters contain mechanical andphysical examples and combine both tutorial and advanced sections, making them attractive both to experts in the field andnonspecialists interested in knowing more about modern methods andtrends in stability theory.
