Solitons and instantons play important roles both in pure and applied mathematics as well as in theoretical physics where they are related to the topological structure of the vacuum. Twistors are a useful tool for solving nonlinear differential equations and are useful for the study of the antiself-dual Yang-Mills equations and the Einstein equations.

In mathematics and physics, a soliton or solitary wave is a self-reinforcing wave packet that maintains its shape while it propagates at a constant velocity. Solitons are caused by a cancellation of nonlinear and dispersive effects in the medium. (Dispersive effects are a property of certain systems where the speed of a wave depends on its frequency.). An instanton (or pseudoparticle) is a notion appearing in theoretical and mathematical instanton is a classical solution to equations of motion with a finite, non-zero action, either in quantum mechanics or in quantum field precisely, it is a solution to the equations of motion of the classical field theory on a Euclidean spacetime. The book provides a self-contained and accessible introduction to the subject. It starts with an introduction to integrability of ordinary and partial differential equations. Subsequent chapters explore symmetry analysis, gauge theory, gravitational instantons, twistor transforms, and Author: Maciej Dunajski.   The methods are then developed for quantizing solitons to obtain quantum particles. Vacuum This book offers an elementary and unified introduction to the non-perturbative results obtained in relativistic quantum field theory based on classical soliton and instanton solutions/5.
