Third European Nonlinear Oscillations Conference
3rd ENOC

3rd ENOC Proceedings, preface


This World Wide Web (WWW) volume contains the proceedings of the conference EUROMECH, Third European Nonlinear Oscillations Conference (3rd ENOC), which took place August 8-12, 1999, at the MIDIT centre, Technical University of Denmark, DK-2800 Lyngby, Denmark. With these proceedings, we wish to establish a tradition of publishing conference papers in electronic form.

The European Mechanics Council has organized more than 300 Euromech Colloquia on specialized topics in mechanics. It has established also the Nonlinear Oscillations Conference Committee (ENOCC) to organize a new initiative in the form of a series of Euromech Conferences on Nonlinear Oscillations. The conferences are intended to bring together scientists working in different fields of dynamics, to exchange ideas and discuss current research trends and developments with emphasis on the interdisciplinary character of nonlinear oscillations. In this respect the 3rd ENOC continues the tradition of the twelve International Conferences on Nonlinear Oscillations (ICNO's) and the two previous ENOCs held in Hamburg 1993, and Prague 1996.

The topics of qualitative analysis of dynamical systems, bifurcation theory, and global analysis have gained much interest among mathematicians and are very important for the understanding of the phenomena observed in nonlinear systems. But just applications show that many basic problems still have to be solved. The aim of the 3rd ENOC is to discuss the new mathematical developments in the theory of nonlinear oscillations and their application in technology and scientific disciplines like mechanics, physics, chemistry, electrodynamics, and biology. The current contributions from the various fields will underline the interdisciplinary, synergetic character of nonlinear dynamics.

The 3rd ENOC proceedings are available in postscript and pdf formats. The postscript files are compressed using gzip. You can download the individual postscript papers and expand them by using the command gunzip 'filename'. In case of problems with reading the proceedings, please contact Mads Peter Sørensen on e-mail address mps@imm.dtu.dk.

The scientific committee had the following members: S.R. Bishop, F. Chernousko, J. Engelbrecht, E. Kreuzer, F. Peterka, F. Pfeiffer, G. Rega, J.P. Pascal, C. Sobczyk and H. Troger.

The local scientific committee consisted of H. True (chairman), M. Brøns, S.B. Jørgensen, M.P. Sørensen and J.J. Thomsen.
