In this volume are twenty-eight papers from the Conference on Nonlinear Partial Differential Equationsin Engineering and Applied Science, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and held at the Universityof Rhode Island in June, 1979. Included are contributions from an international group of distinguishedmathematicians, scientists, and engineers coming from a wide variety of disciplines and having a commoninterest in the application of mathematics, particularly nonlinear partial differential equations, to realworld problems.The subject matter ranges from almost purely mathematical topics in numerical analysis and bifurcationtheory to a host of practical applications that involve nonlinear partial differential equations, suchas fluid dynamics, nonlinear waves, elasticity, viscoelasticity, hyperelasticity, solitons, metallurgy, shocklessairfoil design, quantum fields, and Darcy's law on flows in porous media.Non/inear Partial Differential Equations in Engineering and Applied Science focuses on a variety oftopics of specialized, contemporary concern to mathematicians, physical and biological scientists, andengineers who work with phenomena that can be described by nonlinear partial differential equations.
