Presents the latest research of leading international groups in theoretical and applied dynamics. It starts with a general introduction to the basic concepts of nonlinear dynamics and chaos. Also includes topics on nonlinear problems of structural, mechanical, aerospace and naval engineering; topological and computer methods; cell mapping and global analysis; control of chaos; experimental studies; time series analysis and phase-space reconstruction.
