Introduction to Chaos and Coherence

J Froyland
January 01, 1992

Introduction to Chaos and Coherence provides a clear introduction to the theory of chaotic systems, with a minimum of mathematical complexity. Used extensively in this color-illustrated book, Lyapunov exponents are convenient tools for exploring models of chaotic systems. Aimed primarily at...

Laser Resonators and the Beam Divergence Problem

Yurii A. Anan'ev
January 01, 1992

Professor Yurii A. Anan'ev has a long-standing international reputation for his publications on optical beams and resonators. Now many of his contributions will be readily available for the first time in a book. The generation of maximum power, minimum divergence beams from laser resonators is...
