This ebook collects contributions to the convention" Dynamics, Bifurcation and Symmetry, new tendencies and new tools", which was once held on the Institut d'Etudes Sci entifiques de Cargese (France), September 3-9, 1993. the 1st target of this convention was once to collect and summarize the paintings of the eu Bifurcation idea team after years of lifestyles (the EBTG hyperlinks ecu laboratories in 5 international locations through an EC grant). due to a NATO ARW supply, the convention built into a global assembly on bifurcation conception and dynamical structures, with the partic ipation of major experts not just from Europe but in addition from out of the country international locations (Canada, united states, South America). It was once a very good pride to note the energetic, and fairly enthusiastic participation of many younger scientists. this is often mirrored within the current booklet for which many participants are PhD scholars or post-doc researchers. even though a number of "big" issues (bifurcation with symmetry, low dimensional dynam ics, dynamics in EDP's, purposes, . . . ) are found in those court cases, we've divided the booklet into corresponding elements. in truth those issues overlap in so much contributions, which turns out to mirror a basic tendancy in nonlinear technology. i'm more than happy to thank for his or her help the NATO overseas alternate medical software in addition to the EEC technology software, which made attainable the suc cess of this conference.
