Presentation of recent advances and perspectives in nonlinear dynamics and control from different high level departments of the world universities
Suitable as supplemental reading during the courses guided by the authors of the chapters (papers) from different countries
Highly innovation material oriented on theory and application of engineering dynamical systems
Since top sitted worldwide researchers propose their recent achievements, high disseminations of the obtained results are expected
Special emphasis is put on promotion of the results obtained by Russian, Chinese and Central and East European scientists. Namely, many of the prominent professors as well as the accompanying young doctors have been financially supported in various ways for conference attendance in order to present and publish their recent results
Owing to the interesting and novel results presented by many authors and included in the volume, high citation and advertising of the volume are expected
