The main topics are: the equivalence of the input-output stability of the equation x = and the invertibility of the operator in the class of casual operators; the equivalence of input-output and exponential sta bility; the equivalence of the dichotomy of solutions for the homogene ous equation x = 0 and the invertibility of the operator ; the propert ies of Green's function; the independence of the stability of an equat ion from the norm on the space of solutions; shift invariant functiona l differential equations in Banach space; the possibility of the reduc tion of an equation of neutral type to an equation of retarded type; s pecial full subalgebras of integral and difference operators, and oper ators with unbounded memory; and the analogue of Fredholm's alternativ e for operators with almost periodic coefficients where one-sided inve rtibility implies two-sided invertibility.

Functional Differential Operators and Equations

"This book provides a thorough and rigorous presentation of the use of operator theory methods to study the linear theory of functional-differential equations . . . It is a practically self-contained book by means of which students and researchers working in functional analysis can be introduced to the abstract linear theory of functional-differential equations."—MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
