First published 1987 as Los Alamos science, special issue. A compendium of biographical (and autobiographical) notes, essays, and scientific articles reflecting on Ulam's legacy of interdisciplinary approaches to problems in math, physics, and biology; and previously unpublished miscellanea--conversations, a satirical play. The whole serves to celebrate the personality and contributions of the dynamic mathematician. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, ORMoreover, the amplitude of the wave is proportional to v, and its width is inversely proportional to y/v. ... This relation between the shape and velocity of the wave reflects the nonlinearity of the KdV equation. ... (For a more precise technical analysis of these competing effects in another important nonlinear equation, see anbsp;...
