This monograph explores nonoscillation and existence of positive solutions for functional differential equations and describes their applications to maximum principles, boundary value problems and stability of these equations. In view of this objective the volume considers a wide class of equations including, scalar equations and systems of different types, equations with variable types of delays andequations with variable deviations of the argument.Each chapter includes an introduction and preliminaries, thus making it complete. Appendices at the end of the book cover reference material.
Nonoscillation Theory of FunctionalDifferential Equationswith Applicationsis addressed to a wide audience ofresearchers in mathematics and practitioners.
