Instabilities and Nonequilibrium Structures VII & VIII: by Orazio Descalzi,Javier Martínez,E. Tirapegui

By Orazio Descalzi,Javier Martínez,E. Tirapegui

The contents of this publication correspond to periods VII and VIII of the foreign Workshop on Instabilities and Nonequilibrium constructions which happened in Viña del Mar, Chile, in December 1997 and December 1999,
respectively. half I is dedicated to self-contained classes. 3 classes are concerning new advancements in Bose-Einstein condensation: the 1st one by means of Robert Graham experiences the classical dynamics of excitations of Bose
condensates in anisotropic traps, the second one by way of Marc Etienne Brachet refers back to the bifurcations bobbing up in appealing Bose-Einstein condensates and superfluid helium and the 3rd path through André Verbeure is a pedagogical
advent to the topic with unique emphasis on first ideas and rigorous effects. half I is done via classes given via Michel Moreau: the 1st one on diffusion constrained reactions of debris with fluctuating
job and the second one at the part boundary dynamics in a one dimensional nonequilibrium lattice gasoline. half II incorporates a collection of invited seminars at either Workshops.
