Leading scientists discuss the most recent physical and experimental results in the physics of BoseEinstein
condensate theory, the theory of nonlinear lattices (including quantum and nonlinear lattices), and nonlinear
optics and photonics. Classical and quantum aspects of the dynamics of nonlinear waves are considered.
The contributions focus on the GrossPitaevskii equation and on the quantum nonlinear Schrödinger
equation. Recent experimental results on atomic condensates and hydrogen bonded systems are reviewed.
Particular attention is given to nonlinear matter waves in periodic potential.
