Description:This book presents an introduction to the geometric theory of infinite dimensional dynamical systems. Many of the fundamental results are presented for asymptotically smooth dynamical systems that have applications to functional differential equations as well as classes of dissipative partial differential equations. However, as in the earlier edition, the major emphasis is on retarded functional differential equations. This updated version also contains much material on neutral functional differential equations. The results in the earlier edition on Morse-Smale systems for maps are extended to a class of semiflows, which include retarded functional differential equations and parabolic partial differential equations.
