Abstract: A nonlinear optical system, consisting of a liquid crystal light valve with feedback, can display an enormous variety of spatial patterns. Starting from the basic principles of operation, we review several physical configurations enlighting the specificity of each one and the mechanism by which it leads to certain rules of pattern selection.
