Solitons as Particles, and the Effects of Perturbations
In my presentation, I will illustrate how one can use a perturbation theory to determine how various perturbations can effect soliton propagation. These examples which I will present are results obtained recently by Professor Newell and myself, the full details of which are to be published elsewhere. Here, I shall briefly describe the examples and simply discuss some of the important features of the results.
