The Construction of a 'Relativistic' Wave-Particle: The Soliton.
Isenberg, Cyril
Physics Education, v17 n6 p282-84 Nov 1982
Although most waves studied by students satisfy the linear equation, particle physicists have become interested in nonlinear waves--those not satisfying the superposition principle. A mechanical wave system, satisfying the sine-Gordon equation, can be constructed using a modified transverse wave system to demonstrate nonlinear wave-particle phenomena. (Author/JN)
