This Workshop is a regular meeting taking place in Viña del Mar
or Valparaíso, Chile, since December 1985, found by Professor Enrique
Tirapegui. This Workshop aims to create a stimulating environment
for experts from the region and the rest of the world to present
and discuss their results with the nonlinear community. Since its
beginning, a primary goal of the Workshop has been to promote and
facilitate the participation and cross-discipline interaction of
young scientists together with more established experts from a wide
variety of fields in Nonlinear Science.
Because of the sanitary conditions generated by the pandemic,
it is expected that the event will be held in a hybrid way (online
emerging in nonequilibrium systems
||This workshop session has a very special character since
it appears on the memory of Professor Enrique Tirapegui (1940-2020);
An author of many seminal papers, Enrique Tirapegui completed his
Bachelor’s in physics from the University of Chile (1962), Ph.D. in
Mathematics and Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the University of
Paris. He was incorporated as a number member of the Chilean Academy
of Sciences, Institute of Chile, in 1984. He was a full professor
of the Physics Department of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical
Sciences of the University of Chile (1982-2020). In 1991, he was honored
with the Chilean National Prize for his contributions on “the effects
of random perturbations experienced by macroscopic systems, and in
the formation of spatiotemporal structures in such systems, which
are far from thermodynamic equilibrium.” In his distinguished career,
Prof. Tirapegui published more than 120 scientific articles in journals
with mainstream physics and has trained more than 20 scientists, founding
the nonlinear school in Chile. His main scientific efforts were concentrated
on the theory of normal forms, description of stochastic processes
using path integrals, instabilities in fluids, vortex interaction,
and noise-induced robust effect.
||This conference is the oldest one in South America which
is strictly devoted to the study of Nonlinear Science. The workshop
has been an essential element to develop the discipline in the region.
The Proceedings of the first nine sessions have been published regularly
with Kluwer Academic Publishers (Holland) in the Series on Nonlinear
Phenomena and Complex Systems of the Centro de Física No Lineal y
Sistemas Complejos de Santiago (CFNL), a center founded by Prof. Tirapegui.
The Proceedings of the 11th session appeared in a select number of
the International Journal of Bifurcations and Chaos, and the Proceedings
of the 12th session were published in a special issue of the European
Journal of Physics D. The Proceedings of the 16th session have been
published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
The Proceedings of the 17th session have been published in Chaos journal.
