Book Description

A collection of prestigious postgraduate lectures, Nonlinear Dynamics and Spatial Complexity in Optical Systems reviews developments in the theory and practice of nonlinear dynamics and structural complexity, and explores modern-day applications in nonlinear optics. The book addresses systems including both singlemode and multimode lasers, bistable and multistable devices, optical fibers, counter-propagating beam interactions, nonlinear mixing, and related optical phenomena.
