dc.description.abstract A soliton is a local, traveling wave pulse. It is significant in a variety of unrelated areas, like studies of water waves, acoustic waves, electron transfer, gravity waves, plasmas, optics and condensed matter (Miura [4], Newell [5]). In this paper we will generate and study solitons in a new context, that is, from the point of view of discrete string motion in the XY plane. Our approach enables one to elucidate the complexities of soliton interactions easily using only a scientific personal computer and velocity profiles. Detailed examples are presented and displayed graphically. en
