This book is the first collection of tutorials on nonlinear dynamics of lasers. The International Spring School on Fundamental Issues of Nonlinear Laser Dynamics was aimed at young researchers who are interested in working at the forefront of applied nonlinear mathematics and nonlinear laser dynamics. In a highly interdisciplinary spirit, there were tutorial presentations from 14 internationally recognized top experts from applied mathematics, theoretical and experimental physics, and engineering disciplines. Topics included are: bifurcation theory, the notion of chaos, multiple time scale systems, and delay equations. The dynamics of lasers with optical injection and optical feedback, and lasers with spatio-temporal dynamics are discussed from the theoretical, experimental, and device simulation points of view. Applications of lasers include secure communications, pulse generation and telecommunication through optical fibers. This mixture of introductory material will benefit an inderdisciplinary readership of researchers, lecturers and students in the fields of applied mathematics, physics, and electrical engineering.
