By Anna Capietto, Peter Kloeden, Jean Mawhin, Sylvia Novo, Miguel Ortega

This quantity includes the notes from 5 lecture classes dedicated to nonautonomous differential structures, within which acceptable topological and dynamical suggestions have been defined and utilized to a number of difficulties. The classes came about through the C.I.M.E. consultation "Stability and Bifurcation difficulties for Non-Autonomous Differential Equations," held in Cetraro, Italy, June 19-25 2011. Anna Capietto and Jean Mawhin lectured on nonlinear boundary price difficulties; they utilized the Maslov index and degree-theoretic equipment during this context. Rafael Ortega mentioned the idea of twist maps with nonperiodic part and offered purposes. Peter Kloeden and Sylvia Novo confirmed how dynamical tools can be utilized to check the stability/bifurcation homes of bounded options and of attracting units for nonautonomous differential and functional-differential equations. the quantity might be of curiosity to all researchers operating in those and similar fields.
