Abstract Note  Understanding cooperative phenomena far from equilibrium is one of fascinating challenges of presentday manybody physics. Glassy behaviour and the physical ageing process of such materials are paradigmatic examples. The present volume, primarily intended as introduction and reference for postgraduate students and nonspecialist researchers from related fields, collects six extensive lectures addressing selected experimental and theoretical issues in the field of glassy systems. Lecture 1 gives an introduction and overview of the timedependent behaviour of magnetic spin glasses. Lecture 2 is devoted to an indepth discussion on the nature of the thermal glasstransition in structural glasses. Lecture 3 examines the glassy behaviour of granular systems. Lecture 4 gives a thorough introduction to the techniques and applications of MonteCarlo simulations and the analysis of the resulting data through scaling methods. Lecture 5 introduces the zerorangeprocess concept as simple but subtle model to describe a range of static and dynamic properties of glassy systems. Lecture 6 shows how familiar RG methods for equilibrium systems can be extended to systems far from equilibrium
