Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The goal of this chapter is to introduce some fundamental theories for Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), Retarded Functional Differential Equations (RFDEs), and Age-structured Models and to derive abstract semilinear Cauchy problems from these equations. It serves two purposes: To present a brief review of the basic results on the nonlinear dynamics of these three types of equations and to give a quick preview about the types of results we will develop for the abstract semilinear Cauchy problems in this monograph.
