General Remarks

  • Chapter

Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN)

Abstract

In this chapter we introduce the main ideas of the theory of oscillations, starting from the ideas of Mandelstam about non-linear thinking, commonness and mutual aid between oscillations of different kinds. We give two definitions of self-sustained systems: the original dating back to the 1930s, and the one updated in light of new discoveries of the 20th century. The crucial features of self-sustained oscillations and of the systems producing them are described. The most general definition of synchronization is given.
