    An overview is given on the recent progress in the asymmetric reactions catalyzed by chiral lanthanide complexes. Some important topics concerning asymmetric catalysis with chiral lanthanide metallocenes, lanthanide triflates-based chiral complexes, and chiral heterobimetallic lanthanide complexes as well as some discussion based on the coordination chemistry are presented. Special attention is focused upon the nonlinear effects observed in these reactions.
