Paper Abstract

Nonlinear dynamics in lasers affects the selection of stable steady states, the response to fluctuations, spontaneous dynamical pulsations, the selection and stability of spatial patterns, and the erratic evolution which is sometimes termed chaotic or turbulent. This invited overview reviews some recent examples of these phenomena, indicating how methods of dynamical analysis can help to explain complicated behaviors.
