Russ. Math. Surv. 38, No. 6, 1-42 (1983); translation from Usp. Mat. Nauk. 38, No. 6(234), 3-36 (1983).
The author gives a more general definition of characteristics. Using this definition it is possible to connect different domains of mathematics and physics. The paper contains principal ideas connected with the construction of non-standard characteristics and the solution of suitable asymptotic problems. The author presents a lot of examples. The paper is some kind of a survey.
