Why is it important?

The preface and the Focus Issue Chaos: From Theory to Applications represent important documents in the history of nonlinear dynamics and chaos research.


Contributing to this article has been a pleasure as it has given me the opportunity to put my own work on chaos in a historical perspective. In addition it has been a pleasure to work with Drs. C. Letellier and S. Mangiarotti to edit this Focus Issue.
