Chimera states: from theory and experiments to technology and living systems

One of the pillars of modern science is the concept of symmetries. Spontaneously breaking such symmetries gives rise to non-trivial states, which can explain a variety of phenomena around us. Chimera states, characterized by the coexistence of localized synchronized and unsynchronized dynamics, are a novel example. This Focus Issue covers recent developments in the study of chimera states, both from theoretical and experimental points of view, including an emphasis on prospective practical realization for application in technology and living systems.
