This festschrift is dedicated to Professor Howell Tong on the occasion of his 65th birthday. With a Foreword written by Professor Peter Whittle, FRS, it celebrates Tong's path-breaking and tireless contributions to nonlinear time series analysis, chaos and statistics, by reprinting 10 selected papers by him and his collaborators, which are interleaved with 17 original reviews, written by 19 international experts.Through these papers and reviews, readers will have an opportunity to share many of the excitements, retrospectively and prospectively, of the relatively new subject of nonlinear time series. Tong has played a leading role in laying the foundation of the subject; his innovative and authoritative contributions are reflected in the review articles in the volume, which describe modern and related developments in the subject, including applications in many major fields such as ecology, economics, finance and others. This volume will be useful to researchers and students interested in the theory and practice of nonlinear time series analysis.
This book (with free Online Edition) is full of clear revision notes, diagrams and all the formulas needed for every major GCSE Physics course. It's designed to make revision straightforward - each section is split into a topic per page, with test questions to check what you've learned and practice calculations (with answers).

This volume presents a carefully written introduction to nonlinear waves in the natural sciences and engineering. It contains many classical results as well as more recent results, dealing with topics such as the forced Korteweg--de Vries equation and material relating to X-ray crystallography.
