Positive solutions of differential, difference and integral equations. (English) Zbl 1157.34301

Dordrecht: Kluwer Academic Publishers (ISBN 0-7923-5510-5/hbk). xi, 417 p. (1999).
Publisher’s description: In analysing nonlinear phenomena many mathematical models give rise to problems for which only nonnegative solutions make sense. In the last few years this discipline has grown dramatically. This state-of-the-art volume offers the authors’ recent work, reflecting some of the major advances in the field as well as the diversity of the subject.
This volume will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in mathematical analysis and its applications, whose work involves ordinary differential equations, finite differences and integral equations.
