Lorenz-like dynamics in coherently pumped lasers

R. Corbalan, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain and R. Vilasecz

Avery active and profound revolution in science ignited some 25 years ago with the realization, after the pioneering work of Lorenz, that, just as quantum systems and systems with a large number of particles are unpredictable, low-dimensional, deterministic nonlinear systems also are able to display transitions not only from disorder to order (synergetic behavior) but also from order to complexity (temporal and spatio-temporal instabilities and chaos).
