Multistability is one of the most exciting phenomena in dynamical systems. The coexistence of attractors is a common feature in different areas of science and in nature. Noise, inevitable in a real system can induce switches between coexisting states, thus leading to multistate intermittency. Some applications require control of multistability to avoid or predict these switches. The research results presented in this focus issue demonstrate how multistability arises in various dynamical systems, its use for different applications, and how we can control it.
