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 text provides an introduction to all the relevant material normally encountered at university level: series solution, special functions, Sturm-Liouville theory and the definition, properties and use of various integral transforms.

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.

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.
