These equations are ordinary differential equations with stochastic forces whose properties are investigated. From the solutions of these equations the diffusion of the solitons can be obtained as a function of time and temperature. These predictions are tested by Langevin dynamics simulations (i.e. by numerical integration of the microscopic equations).\\ The supervisor is Prof. F. G. Mertens, who speaks Spanish and collaborates in this project with Prof. Angel S\'anchez, University Carlos III, Madrid. Knowledge of the German language is not required because everybody in the institute speaks English.\\ For the Ph. D. about 3 years are needed. The scholarship is tax-free and amounts to ca. 1.600 DM a month (1 DM = 85 pesetas). In addition, 340 DM can be earned as a tutor for exercises in theoretical physics (in English language).\\ Applications should be sent by December 15, 1997 to:\\ Prof. F. G. Mertens, Physikalisches Institut, Theoretische Physik I, Universi\"at Bayreuth, D-95440 Bayreuth, Germany, phone ++49-921-55 3227,\\ e-mail: [log in para visualizar]\\ Further informations can be obtained from:\\ Prof. Angel S\'anchez, phone (prefix 9, if calling within Spain) 1-624-9411,\\ e-mail: [log in para visualizar]\\ and from the web: http://www.phy.uni-bayreuth.de/theo/tp1/tp1.html \end{document}
