About this book


It is hoped that these notes will serve as an introduction to the subject of functional differential equations. The topics are very selective and represent only one particular viewpoint. Complementary material dealing with extensions of closely related topics are given in the notes at the end. A short bibliography is appended as source material for further study. The author is very grateful to the Mathematics Department at UCLA for having extended the invitation to give a series of lectures on functional differ­ ential equations during the Applied Mathematics Year, 1968-1969. The extreme interest and sincere criticism of the members of the audience were a constant source of inspiration in the preparation of the lectures as well as the notes. Except for Sections 6, 32, 33, 34 and some other minor modifications, the notes represent the material covered in two quarters at UCLA. The author wishes to thank Katherine McDougall and Sandra Spinacci for their excellent preparation of the text. The author is also indebted to Eleanor Addison for her work on the drawings and to Dr. H. T. Banks for his careful proofreading of this material. Jack K.
