The Contraction Mapping Principle and Some Applications
by Robert M. Brooks, Klaus Schmitt
Publisher: American Mathematical Society 2009
Number of pages: 90
These notes contain various versions of the contraction mapping principle. Several applications to existence theorems in the theories of differential and integral equations and variational inequalities are given. Also discussed are Hilbert's projective metric and iterated function systems.

This book provides an introduction to ordinary differential equations and dynamical systems. We start with some simple examples of explicitly solvable equations. Then we prove the fundamental results concerning the initial value problem.
