Nonlinear science : the next decade

edited by David K. Campbell, Robert E. Ecke, James M. Hyman

These 50 contributions provide a valuable retrospective on research in nonlinear science over the past decade in addition to mapping out new and exciting directions for the future. They are organized around three paradigms that have come to dominate the field: deterministic chaos and nonlinear dynamics, solutions and coherent structures, and patterns and turbulence. Chapters represent broad areas of pure and applied mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering. Many are important reviews of topics in nonlinear science that also contain the latest contributions in that area.David Campbell is Director of the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory where Robert E. Ecke is a staff member in the Physics Division and Acting Deputy Director of the Center for Nonlinear Studies, and James M. Hyman is a Group Leader in the Theoretical Physics Division.Contributions include: Periodic Orbits in Classical and Quantum Chaos. Phase Space Reconstruction of Dynamical Systems. Nonlinear Oscillations in Chemical and Biological Systems. Transport in 2D Maps and in PDEs. Solutions and Integrability. Experiments in Pattern Forming Systems. Spatio-Temporal Patterns in Nonlinear Optics. Nonlinear Waves. Fluid Turbulence.
