About this book


The book provides an overview of nonlinear optics by leading researchers in the field. It addresses recent problems of self-organization in various nonlinear optical systems, and discusses new applications to optical processing. Theoretical models and methods describing optical pattern formation in nonlinear systems along with newly published experimental results are presented. Specific topics considered include various aspects of pattern formation, optical associative memory, spatio-temporal instability, and chaos in optical systems.
This volume is intended for graduate students and researchers who wish to expand their knowledge of modern nonlinear optics.
