This choice of lectures covers quite a lot of modern day study in thermodynamics and the speculation of section transitions faraway from equilibrium. The contributions are written in a pedagogical type and current an in depth bibliography to aid graduates manage their extra reviews during this region. The reader will locate lectures on ideas of trend formation in physics, chemistry and biology, part instabilities and section transitions, spatial and temporal buildings in optical structures, transition to chaos, severe phenomena and fluctuations in reaction-diffusion structures, and lots more and plenty extra.

FLUCTUATIONS IN THE TRANSIENT DYNAMICS OF NONLINEAR OPTICAL SYSTEMS M. - INTRODUCTION The laser threshold instability can be considered a prototype a m o n g the m a n y physical situations exhibiting transitions in states far from e q u i l i b r i u m . The a n a l o g i e s b e t w e e n equilibrium phase transitions and nonequilibrium instabilities were understood rather early in this context.
