Nanotechnology has developed rapidly in recent years, making it possible to engineer mechanical, optical or electronic devices that are the size of a few hundred atomic diameters.

The equations of motion of such nanoscopic systems are generically nonlinear, and they frequently operate in a regime where a linear approximation is not justified. The understanding of nonlinear dynamical processes in nanosystems is a new field of research of considerable technological importance.

This book give introductions to crucial fields of nonlinear dynamics of nano–systems. The topics cover a wide range of current research in this field.

Günter Radons holds a Chair for Complex Systems and Nonlinear Dynamics at the Technical University of Chemnitz, Germany. His main research interests cover the application of the theory of complex systems to natural sciences and engineering. He is organizer and chair of many interdisciplinary symposia and workshops on this topic and has edited books on the topic.

Benno Rumpf works within his group on topic problems of nonlinear dynamics. He is responsible for the research activities on nonlinear wave processes and discretes breathers.

Heinz–Georg Schuster heads the Department of Theoretical Physics at the Christian Albrecht University Kiel, Germany. His research activities include the study of nonlinear systems by methods of statistical mechanics, applying analytical as well as numerical tools. Motivations are taken from neurobiological and biologically adaptive systems in order to design statistical models of their basic properties. He gathered much experience as author and editor of both scientific and popular publications.
