Multicritical Behaviour of a Nonequilibrium System

  • Tormod Riste

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 106)


In the first part of this school we only dealt with multicriticality in equilibrium systems. Later we discussed nonequilibrium systems and chaos. This talk will address the problem: does multicriticality exist also in nonequilibrium systems and, if it does, what similarities/differences do we find?
