  • May serve as the convenient introduction into intensively developing and interesting branches of contemporary nonlinear analysis, theory of differential equations and inclusions and control theory
  • The presentation is self-contained and directed to a non-specialist Contains interesting applications of the theory in control theory, theory of bifurcations and physics

This book offers a self-contained introduction to the theory of guiding functions methods, which can be used to study the existence of periodic solutions and their bifurcations in ordinary differential equations, differential inclusions and in control theory. It starts with the basic concepts of nonlinear and multivalued analysis, describes the classical aspects of the method of guiding functions, and then presents recent findings only available in the research literature. It describes essential applications in control theory, the theory of bifurcations, and physics, making it a valuable resource not only for “pure” mathematicians, but also for students and researchers working in applied mathematics, the engineering sciences and physics.
