The Contraction Mapping Principle and Some Applications
by Robert M. Brooks, Klaus Schmitt
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2009
Number of pages: 90
These notes contain various versions of the contraction mapping principle. Several applications to existence theorems in the theories of differential and integral equations and variational inequalities are given. Also discussed are Hilbert's projective metric and iterated function systems.

This book consists of ten weeks of material given as a course on ordinary differential equations for second year mathematics majors. Rather than seeking to find specific solutions, we seek to understand how all solutions are related in phase space.

This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem.

The author's goal was to give the audience an introduction to the algebraic, analytic and algorithmic aspects of the Galois theory of linear differential equations by focusing on some of the main ideas and philosophies and on examples.

The intent of this set of notes is to present several of the important existence theorems for solutions of various types of problems associated with differential equations and provide qualitative and quantitative descriptions of solutions.
