CPT Student Seminar: Collective coordinate approximation to the scattering of solitons in modified (1+1) NLS and sine-Gordon models
3 November 2014 17:00 in OC218
In this talk I will discuss the suitability of the collective coordinate approximation when modelling two interacting solitons in interesting modifications of the non-linear Schrodinger and sine-Gordon equations. These equations have been chosen as systems where the concept of quasi-integrability can be explored and I will give some background to this idea.

A gathering of mathematicians from the CPT group with physicists from IPPP, we meet to discuss our work in a relaxed and friendly environment.
