This work is based on the International Symposium on Comparison Methods and Stability Theory held in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It presents advances in comparison methods and stability theory in a wide range of nonlinear problems, covering a variety of topics such as ordinary, functional, impulsive, integro-, partial, and uncertain differential equations.

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of a conference held in Waterloo, Ontario in June 1993. Topics include nonisothermal semiconductor systems, a model for the growth of the subpopulation of lawyers, monotone iterative algorithms for coupled systems of nonlinear parabolic boundary value problems, gradients and Gauss curvature bounds for H-graphs, impulsive stabilization, comparison methods in control theory , and geometric methods in population dynamics.
