Summary:The book contains two main parts dealing both with nonlinear approaches in the study of complex natural systems. In its first part it introduces a new construction of pattern recognition problems applicable to a wide range of geophysical and environmental objects. The classification in such problems depends on time which allows one to formulate the condition of stability of final classifications for verification of its reliability. A new wide set of pattern recognition algorithms with learning ("Voting by Set of Features") is introduced. Theoretical and algorithmical parts are illustrated by some examples of applications to natural hazard assessment. In the second part of the book, an alternative approach to the geophysical applications is given in terms of dynamic systems and corresponding tools. Dynamic systems studies are useful to understand nonlinear time series. Self Organized Criticality and multifractal analysis are powerful new keys for understanding many natural phenomena. All these methods are of great interest in any long data file processing
