Noun1.soliton wave - (physics) a quantum of energy or quasiparticle that can be propagated as a traveling wave in nonlinear systems and is neither preceded nor followed by another such disturbance; does not obey the superposition principle and does not dissipate; "soliton waves can travel long distances with little loss of energy or structure"
natural philosophy, physics - the science of matter and energy and their interactions; "his favorite subject was physics"
traveling wave, travelling wave - a wave in which the medium moves in the direction of propagation of the wave
