Please recommend introductory books to nonlinear wave

  1. Jul 27, 2007 #1
    Hi all.
    I am a mechanical engineering entering the field of nonlinear wave.
    I am finding an introductory text on this topic. Things about nonlinear wave, nonliear optics etc.
    I would hope to get a really easy-to-read book first since I have actually NO prior experience in these fields AT ALL.
    So, please kindly recommend some good texts for me.

    This looks like a reasonable introduction: G.B. Whitham, Linear and Nonlinear Waves (Amazon.com link)
