Second-order Ordinary Differential Equations
by R.S. Johnson
Publisher: Bookboon 2012
Number of pages: 181
This text provides an introduction to all the relevant material normally encountered at university level: series solution, special functions (Bessel, etc.), Sturm-Liouville theory (involving the appearance of eigenvalues and eigenfunctions) and the definition, properties and use of various integral transforms (Fourier, Laplace, etc.). Numerous worked examples are provided throughout.

These notes contain various versions of the contraction mapping principle. Several applications to existence theorems in differential and integral equations and variational inequalities are given. Also discussed are Hilbert's projective metric.

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.
