Description: The Frequently Asked Questions document for the newsgroup sci.nonlinear. Basic Theory, Applications and Advanced Theory; Learn More; Computational Resources. Nonlinear systems have been shown to exhibit surprising and complex effects that would never be anticipated by a scientist trained only in linear techniques. Prominent examples of these include bifurcation, chaos, and solitons. Nonlinearity has its most profound effects on dynamical systems. Nonlinear science has applications to a wide variety of fields, from mathematics, physics, biology, and chemistry, to engineering, economics, and medicine.
