Nonlinear Schrödinger Models: Continuum and Discrete Solitons and their Ghosts in PT-Symmetric Systems with Defocusing Nonlinearities -- Coding of Nonlinear States for NLS-Type Equations with Periodic Potential -- Nonreciprocal Wave Propagation Through Open, Discrete Nonlinear Schrödinger dimers -- Breather Solutions of the discrete p-Schrödinger.

The study of nonlinear localized excitations is a long-standing challenge for research in basic and applied science, as well as engineering, due to their importance in understanding and predicting phenomena arising in nonlinear and complex systems, but also due to their potential for the development and design of novel applications. This volume is a compilation of chapters representing the current state-of-the-art on the field of localized excitations and their role in the dynamics of complex physical systems.
