The occurrence of extreme events in complex systems is not just a statistical issue but also a dynamical one. The dynamics which is responsible for the normal fluctuations exhibited by a system must also be capable of generating extreme excursions. Such a dynamical point of view offers new approaches towards understanding and prediction of the occurrence of extreme events.
