ABSTRACT

This paper presents an introduction to the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems, emphasizing some basic facts and recent advances. The point of view is focused on the analysis of signals. The described methods can be applied to many fields (fluid mechanics, chemistry, astrophysics, electronics,...) and should also be useful to the community of plasma workers.
