The general point of view of my lectures will be that of the applied mathematician interested in problem-solving. Some general techniques, such as bifurcation methods and various aspects of singular perturbations, will be discussed, but mostly in the context of specific examples related to chemical oscillations and waves. The more general background can be found in the paper by Professor Nicolis .
