Title: Dissipative solitons in life and science

Brief Description:
Special Note: More current information may be available at Plan-it Purple

The concept of soliton has been changing over the last decade or two. It changed from being a nonlinear mode of an integrable system to being described as a Hamiltonian soliton and moreover a dissipative soliton. Dissipative solitons form a new paradigm for the investigation of phenomena involving stable structures in nonlinear systems far from equilibrium. This talk is aimed to reflect new items in the general list of solitons and to discuss their common features and differences from the traditional concept of solitons.
