Chaos 15, 037101 (2005)
We introduce the concept of this special focus issue on solitons in nonintegrable systems. A brief
overview of some recent developments is provided, and the various contributions are described.
The topics covered in this focus issue are the modulation of solitons, bores, and shocks, the
dynamical evolution of solitary waves, and existence and stability of solitary waves and embedded
