Hyperbolicity In Delay Equations
Luis Barreira, Claudia Valls
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of hyperbolicity in both linear and nonlinear delay equations. This includes a self-contained discussion of the foundations, main results and essential techniques, with emphasis on important parts of the theory that apply to a large class of delay equations. The central theme is always hyperbolicity and only topics that are directly related to it are included. Among these are robustness, admissibility, invariant manifolds, and spectra, which play important roles in life sciences, engineering and control theory, especially in delayed feedback mechanisms.The book is dedicated to researchers as well as graduate students specializing in differential equations and dynamical systems who wish to have an extensive and in-depth view of the hyperbolicity theory of delay equations. It can also be used as a basis for graduate courses on the stability and hyperbolicity of delay equations.
