On March 14-18, 1983 a workshop on "Chemical Instabilities: purposes in Chemistry, Engineering, Geology, and fabrics technology" was once held in Austin, Texas, U.S.A. It was once equipped together through the college of Texas at Austin and the Universite Libre de Bruxelles and backed qy NATO, NSF, the college of Texas at Austin, the foreign Solvay Institutes and the Ex­ xon company. the current quantity contains lots of the fabric of the in­ vited lectures brought within the workshop in addition to fabric from a few posters, whose content material used to be without delay regarding the subjects of the invited lectures. In ,recent years, difficulties relating to the steadiness and the nonlinear dynamics of nonequilibrium structures invaded a superb num­ ber of fields starting from summary arithmetic to biology. probably the most outstanding elements of this improvement is that matters reputed to be "classical" and "well-established" like chemistry, became out to offer upward push to a wealthy number of phenomena resulting in a number of regular states and hysteresis, oscillatory habit in time, spatial styles, or propagating wave fronts. the first aim of the workshop used to be to assemble researchers actively engaged in fields within which instabilities and nonlinear phenomena just like these saw in chemistry are of present and first hindrance : chemical engineering (especially floor catalysis), combustion (dynamics of ignition, flame sta­ bili t;y), interfaces (emulsification, dendritic growth), geology (regularly repeated styles of mineralization 1n a number of spabe scales), and fabrics technological know-how (dynamical solidification, habit of subject less than irradiation).

It's most likely secure to foretell that the way forward for chemistry is associated with the excited states of molecules and to different brief lived species, ions and loose radicals. Molecules have just one floor kingdom yet many excited states. besides the fact that huge the scope of ordinary, flooring kingdom chemistry could be, above and past it lies the area of excited states, every one having its personal chemis­ test.

This scatter points out the difficulty of getting a reliable value. Indeed the calculus does not rely on the phase-space trajectories themselves. Rather it involves the first return map (In map) drawn from a Poincare section of the attractor. Because the result is largely dependent on the shape of this In map, the analytical form of the curve chosen to fit experimental points is the key-point of the procedure. Accor- CHEMICAL DISSIPATIVE SYSTEMS AND THE MEASURE OF CHAOS 21 dingly, the exponent so computed is very sensitive to any kind of uncertainty coming from experimental noise, lack of accuracy, numerical treatment of data, etc.

The mechanism of this reaction is far simpler than that of the BZ reaction (Field, Karas and Noyes, [6 1), since only inorganic species are involved. In fact, oscillations in this system were first predicted from numerical simulations (Bar-Eli, [231) before they were found experimentally. From this minimal oscillator, it is possible to generate a new family of chemical o~cillators consisting of bromate, the metal ion and a reducing agent capable of generating bromide from bromate at an appropriate rate (Alamgir, Orb~n and Epstein, [241).
