About the Author

Roman Grigoriev got his PhD at the California Institute of Technology and became a Research Associate at the University of Chicago before he moved to Georgia Tech. Professor Grigoriev's research on nonequilibrium systems such as fluids, lasers and living systems ranges from mixing in fluids, thin liquid films and wide aperture lasers to the heart muscle.

Heinz Georg Schuster is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Kiel in Germany. He was a visiting professor at the Weizmann-Institute of Science in Israel and at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, USA. He authored and edited many books on nonlinear phenomena and chaos control.
