The dynamics of many nonlinear systems gravitate around a few common central themes: intermittency, order/coherence and disorder. Intermittency may be the universal outcome of a large class of nonlinear systems; however, the universality properties of specific nonlinear systems remain open questions. This volume consists of articles by leading figures who all participated in a workshop held at the Newton Institute in Cambridge.

Industry Reviews

Review of the hardback: '... those who would like to have in a single place a survey of the many questions involved in the relation between statistics and structure in turbulence, will find in it relevant material that is not easily found elsewhere.' Javier Jimenez, European Journal of Mechanical B-Fluids
Review of the hardback: '... worthwhile to read ... to experience the dynamics in this field and, perhaps, become engaged by it.' Siefgried Grossman, Measurement, Science & Technology
