 Oscillation theory and dynamical systems have long been rich and active areas of research. Containing frontier contributions by some of the leaders in the field, this book brings together papers based on presentations at the AMS meeting in San Francisco in January, 1991. With special emphasis on delay equations, the papers cover a broad range of topics in ordinary, partial, and difference equations and include applications to problems in commodity prices, biological modeling, and number theory. The book would be of interest to graduate students and researchers in mathematics or those in other fields who have an interest in delay equations and their applications. Table of Contents  S. J.
