Synopses & Reviews
This book covers the most important issues in the theory of functional differential equations and their applications for both deterministic and stochastic cases. Among the subjects treated are qualitative theory, stability, periodic solutions, optimal control and estimation, the theory of linear equations, and basic principles of mathematical modelling. The work, which treats many concrete problems in detail, gives a good overview of the entire field and will serve as a stimulating guide to further research. Audience: This volume will be of interest to researchers and (post)graduate students working in analysis, and in functional analysis in particular. It will also appeal to mathematical engineers, industrial mathematicians, mathematical system theoreticians and mathematical modellers.
