A major step in differential games is determining an explicit form of the strategies of players who follow a certain optimality principle. To do this, the associated modification of Bellman dynamic programming problems has to be solved; for some differential games this could be Lyapunov functions...

Linear nonautonomous equations arise as mathematical models in mechanics, chemistry, and biology. The investigation of bounded solutions to systems of differential equations involves some important and challenging problems of perturbation theory for invariant toroidal manifolds. This monograph is a...
