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.
by Norbert Euler - Bookboon
The book consists of lecture notes intended for engineering and science students who are reading a first course in ordinary differential equations and who have already read a course on linear algebra, general vector spaces and integral calculus.
