Abstract : Soliton Dynamics in the Presence of External Forces: a recent conjecture that solitons are not newtonian particles is discussed. It is shown that whether or not newtonian motion is observed will depend critically on the definition of the soliton's center. Nonlinear Scattering of Whistlers by Electrostatic Fluctuations: sharply localized is demonstrated that such distributions could possible be explained by a modulational instability arising from interactions with ion-cyclotron waves. The Forced Toda Lattice: An example of an Almost Integrable System: forced integrable systems are discussed using the forced Toda lattice as an example. It is demonstrated how these systems are almost integrable.
