This book deals with the methods and concepts of nonlinear dynamics, pattern formation, bifurcation theory, irreversible thermodynamics, and their application to advanced materials science problems. The focus is on the effect of dynamical instabilities on materials behavior and properties. The book is addressed to physicists, chemists, mathematicians and engineers who wish to work in this domain, or to learn about its latest advances. It is also aimed at bridging gaps between science and technology.
