Spatially localized structures arise frequently in driven dissipative
systems. In this lecture I will describe a number of examples from
different physical systems, followed by a discussion of the basic
ideas behind the phenomenon of nonlinear self-localization that
is responsible for their existence. I will illustrate these ideas
using a simple phenomenological model and explain why the
qualitative predictions of this model help us understand the
properties of much more complicated systems exhibiting spatial
localization, including those arising in fluid mechanics.
