Abstract



 Asymmetric states could be spontaneously generated under nonequilibrium conditions. One of the most interesting asymmetries in nature is that between the left and the right or chiral asymmetry. We are only beginning to understand autocatalytic processes that could generate such asymmetric states. Some examples of spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking and related phenomena will be discussed.
