A co-publication of the AMS and Canadian Mathematical Society

The year 1986 marked the sesquicentennial of the publication
in 1836 of J. Sturm's classic memoir on boundary value problems for
second order equations. In July 1986, the Canadian Mathematical
Society sponsored the International Conference on Oscillation,
Bifurcation, and Chaos, held at the University of Toronto. This
volume contains the proceedings of this conference.

Requiring a basic knowledge of the qualitative theory of differential
equations, this book is aimed at mathematicians and students working
in any area of differential equations, as well as researchers
interested in applying recent results in oscillation and bifurcation
theory to other disciplines. Readers will gain a broad perspective on
current research in this area from both the Sturmian and dynamical
systems points of view, as well as an understanding of new results
useful for application and of directions for future research.
