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.

We study the existence and uniqueness of periodic solutions for evolution equations. We analyze the one-dimensional case, then for arbitrary dimensions. We consider linear symmetric operators. We prove the same results for non-linear operators.

With the formal exercise in solving the usual types of ordinary differential equations it is the object of this text to combine a thorough drill in the solution of problems in which the student sets up and integrates his own differential equation.
