Chaos, patterns, coherent structures, and turbulence: Reflections on nonlinear science.

- PhysicsChaos
- 2015

The paradigms of nonlinear science were succinctly articulated over 25 years ago as deterministic chaos, pattern formation, coherent structures, and adaptation/evolution/learning, which hoped to provide the tools and concepts for the understanding and characterization of the strongly nonlinear problem of fluid turbulence.

Conservative chaos in a simple oscillatory system with non-smooth nonlinearity
