Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 19)

Abstract

A survey is given of the theoretical contributions by H. Haken to laser physics, and their impact upon experimental investigation. The practical problems arising in the experimental implementation of laser chaos are discussed here, with particular reference to the recent observation of Shilnikov chaos.
