In keeping with the tradition of previous summer schools on fundamental problems in statistical mechanics, this book contains in depth treatemnts of topics of current interest in statistical mechanics and closely related fields. The topics covered include: dynamical impurity problems, quantum phase transitions, vortex liquids and glasses, quasicrystals and related aperiodic structures, pattern formation, turbulence, exactly solvable models, polymers, phase transitions in colloids, interfaces and two-dimensional gravity.Proceedings of the Eighth International Summer School on Fundamental Problems in Statistical Mechanics, Altenberg, ... *ATaamp;T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill NJ 07974 USA. In this paper, based on the lectures by PCH and WvS at this summer school, we give an introduction to amplitude ... the amplitude equations that govern the time evolution of patterns and discuss simple solutions of these equations.
