**Description**:

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.

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.

**Linearization via the Lie Derivative**

by

**Carmen Chicone, Richard Swanson**-

**American Mathematical Society**

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.
