The study of earthquakes is one of the most interesting and challenging problems in modern geophysics. Understanding dynamics, mechanical properties, chemistry, and other aspects of earthquake phenomena is crucial for both the scientific community and society at large. As a consequence, the development of different prediction techniques is of tremendous significance for many aspects of our life. Nonlinear Dynamics of the Lithosphere and Earthquake Prediction is a review of methods and techniques developed by the group of V.I. Keilis-Borok concerning intermediate-term predictions based on premonitory seismicity patterns. The book is well organized, clearly written, and can be used as a reference for many concepts and ideas in the field of mathematical prediction of catastrophic events. It can also serve as a “cookbook” for applying several prediction algorithms developed by the authors.
