The dynamics of many nonlinear systems gravitate around a few common central themes: intermittency, order/coherence and disorder. Intermittency may be the universal outcome of a large class of nonlinear systems; however, the universality properties of specific nonlinear systems remain open questions. This volume consists of articles by leading figures who all participated in a workshop held at the Newton Institute in Cambridge.

Editorial Reviews

Review of the hardback: '... worthwhile to read ... to experience the dynamics in this field and, perhaps, become engaged by it.' Siefgried Grossman, Measurement, Science & Technology
