Pattern Formation and Dynamics in Nonequilibrium Systems

Experiment is the interrogation of Nature.

Robert Boyle (1627-1691)

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful;
he studies it because he delights in it, and
he delights in it because it is beautiful.

Henri Poincare (1854-1912)

An experiment is a question which science poses to nature
and a measurement is the recording of nature’s answer.

Max Planck (1858-1947)

No one undertakes research in physics with the intention of winning a prize.
It is the joy of discovering something no one knew before

Stephen Hawking (1942-2018)
