Summary: This chapter presents an overview of models providing for theoretical description of basic one- and two-dimensional nonlinear patterns and their stability in mixtures of degenerate Bose and/or Fermi gases, in the mean-field approximation. The models are based on coupled Gross-Pitaevskii equations for bosonic gases, and mean-field-hydrodynamic equations for gases of fermions.
