Burgers, Fisher and Related Equations
In the preceeding three chapters we examined the nonlinear evolution equations that include dispersion terms. In this chapter, we will study the nonlinear evolution equations where each equation contains the dissipative term u xx in addition to other partial derivatives. This new family of nonlinear equations gained its importance because it appears in many scientific applications and physical phenomena.
