Macroscopic physics offers us with an exceptional number of pattern-forming structures exhibiting propagation phenomena, from reactive fronts in combustion, to wavy constructions in convection and to shear movement instabilities in hydrodynamics. those court cases checklist development during this quickly increasing box. The contributions have the subsequent significant issues: - the issues of speed choice and entrance morphology of propagating interfaces in multiphase media, with emphasis on fresh theoretical and experimental effects on dendritic crystal progress, Saffman-Taylor fingering, directional solidification and chemical waves. - The "unfolding" of large-scale, low-frequency habit in weakly restricted homogeneous structures pushed faraway from equilibrium, and extra particularly, the envelope method of the mathematical description of textures in several instances: regular cells, propagating waves, structural defects, and part instabilities. - the results of the presence of worldwide downstream shipping in open flows for the character, convective or absolute, of shear circulate instabilities, with functions to actual boundary layer flows or shear layers, as said in contributions protecting experimental occasions of basic and/or engineering curiosity.
