Part of the Nonlinear Physical Science book series (NPS)


In this chapter, we will study two families of nonlinear evolution equations that gained its importance because of its appearance in many scientific applications and physical phenomena. These are the family of Camassa-Holm equations and the family of Schrodinger equations.
