^{1}TL;DR: In this article, a systematic method is developed which allows one to identify certain important classes of evolution equations which can be solved by the method of inverse scattering, where the form of each evolution equation is characterized by the dispersion relation of its associated linearized version and an integro-differential operator.

Abstract: A systematic method is developed which allows one to identify certain important classes of evolution equations which can be solved by the method of inverse scattering The form of each evolution equation is characterized by the dispersion relation of its associated linearized version and an integro-differential operator A comprehensive presentation of the inverse scattering method is given and general features of the solution are discussed The relationship of the scattering theory and Backlund transformations is brought out In view of the role of the dispersion relation, the comparatively simple asymptotic states, and the similarity of the method itself to Fourier transforms, this theory can be considered a natural extension of Fourier analysis to nonlinear problems

TL;DR: In this paper, a theoretical justification for an empirical boundary condition proposed by Beavers and Joseph is given for non-homogeneous porous medium, and the statistical approach is checked by using it to derive Einstein's law for the viscosity of dilute suspensions.

Abstract: A theoretical justification is given for an empirical boundary condition proposed by Beavers and Joseph [1]. The method consists of first using a statistical approach to extend Darcy's law to non homogeneous porous medium. The limiting case of a step function distribution of permeability and porosity is then examined by boundary layer techniques, and shown to give the required boundary condition. In an Appendix, the statistical approach is checked by using it to derive Einstein's law for the viscosity of dilute suspensions.

TL;DR: In this article, the Hartree-Fock theory of a plasma was used to prove existence and uniqueness of a minimization of the functional function of an electron trapped in its own hole.

Abstract: The equation dealt with in this paper is in three dimensions. It comes from minimizing the functional which, in turn, comes from an approximation to the Hartree-Fock theory of a plasma. It describes an electron trapped in its own hole. The interesting mathematical aspect of the problem is that & is not convex, and usual methods to show existence and uniqueness of the minimum do not apply. By using symmetric decreasing rearrangement inequalities we are able to prove existence and uniqueness (modulo translations) of a minimizing Φ. To prove uniqueness a strict form of the inequality, which we believe is new, is employed.

TL;DR: A detailed analysis of the cubic Schrodinger equation under the boundary conditions as |x|→∞ is given in this paper, where the inverse-scattering technique is used, and the asymptotic state is a series of solitons.

Abstract: A detailed analysis is given to the solution of the cubic Schrodinger equation iqt + qxx + 2|q|2q = 0 under the boundary conditions as |x|→∞. The inverse-scattering technique is used, and the asymptotic state is a series of solitons. However, there is no soliton whose amplitude is stationary in time. Each soliton has a definite velocity and “pulsates” in time with a definite period. The interaction of two solitons is considered, and a possible extension to the perturbed periodic wave [q(x + T,t) = q(x,t) as |x|→∞] is discussed.

TL;DR: It is suggested that competition solves a sensitivity problem that confronts all cellular systems: the noise-saturation dilemma.

Abstract: This article is the first of a series to globally analyse competitive dynamical systems. The article suggests that competition solves a sensitivity problem that confronts all cellular systems: the noise-saturation dilemma. Low energy input patterns can be registered poorly by cells due to their internal noise. High energy input patterns can be registered poorly by cells because their sensitivity approaches zero when all their sites are turned on. How do cells balance between the two equally deadly, but complementary, extremes of noise and saturation? How do cells achieve a Golden Mean?
