This is the first attempt at a systematic study of infinite dimensional dynamical systems generated by dissipative evolution partial differential equations arising in mechanics and physics. Other areas of science and technology are included where appropriate. The relation between infinite and finite dimensional systems is presented from a synthetic viewpoint and equations considered include reaction-diffusion, Navier-Stokes and other fluid mechanics equations, magnetohydrodynamics, thermohydraulics, pattern formation, Ginzburg-Landau, damped wave and an introduction to inertial manifolds.
