The foundation of the modern theory of stability was created in the works of A. Poincare and A.M. Lyapunov. The theory of the stability of motion has gained increasing significance in the last decade as is apparent from the large number of publications on the subject. A considerable part of these works are concerned with practical problems, especially problems from the area of controls and servo-mechanisms, and concrete problems from engineering, which first gave the decisive impetus for the expansion and modern development of stability theory.

This book contains a systematic exposition of the elements of the asymptotic stability theory of general non-autonomous dynamical systems in metric spaces with an emphasis on the application for different classes of non-autonomous evolution equations (Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), Difference Equations (DEs), Functional-Differential Equations (FDEs), Semi-Linear Parabolic Equations etc). The basic results of this book are contained in the courses of lectures which the author has given during many years for the students of the State University of Moldova.

This book is intended for mathematicians (scientists and university professors) who are working in the field of stability theory of differential/difference equations, dynamical systems and control theory. It would also be of use for the graduate and post graduate student who is interested in the theory of dynamical systems and its applications. The reader needs no deep knowledge of special branches of mathematics, although it should be easier for readers who know the fundamentals concepts of the theory of metric spaces, qualitativetheory of differential/difference equations and dynamical systems.
