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 work has been prepared to meet a want in a course on the subject, arranged for advanced students in Physics. It could be used in connection with lectures on the theory of Differential Equations and the derivation of the methods of solution.

This text has been written in clear and accurate language that students can read and comprehend. The author has minimized the number of explicitly state theorems and definitions, in favor of dealing with concepts in a more conversational manner.

The proof of the Grobman-Hartman linearization theorem for a flow at a hyperbolic rest point proceeds by establishing the analogous result for hyperbolic fixed points of local diffeomorphisms. We present a proof that avoids the discrete case.
