Summary Nonlinear science has a very broad scope and the aim of this volume of lectures is to introduce different aspects of this vast domain to research students whose studies are necessarily concentrated on only one. The lectures given at summer schools in France between 1997 and 1999, describe analytical, geometrical and experimental approaches to subjects as diverse as turbulence, elasticity, physiology, classical mechanics, quantum chaos, water waves and the laser cooling of atoms
Notes "The lectures contained in this book took place at two summer schools, the INLN Summer Schools on Nonlinear Phenomena, in June 1998 and June 1999"--Preface
