Friction and Forced Flow: Collective Transport in Disordered Media
Various problems of non-linear collective transport through disordered media are discussed, using sliding charge density waves as a paradigm. These systems all exhibit features of nonlinear dynamics, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena.
