Book DetailsFields Institute CommunicationsVolume: 29; 2001; 378 ppMSC: Primary 34; 39; 35;
This volume contains papers written by participants at the Conference on Functional Differential and Difference Equations held at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon, Portugal. The conference brought together mathematicians working in a wide range of topics, including qualitative properties of solutions, bifurcation and stability theory, oscillatory behavior, control theory and feedback systems, biological models, statedependent delay equations, Lyapunov methods, etc. Articles are written by leading experts in the field. A comprehensive overview is given of these active areas of current research. The book will be of interest to both theoretical and applied mathematical scientists.
ReadershipGraduate students and research and applied mathematicians interested in ordinary differential equations, difference and functional equations, and partial differential equations.
