The book presents an extension, due to the present author, of Conley's homotopy index theory to certain (one-sided) semiflows on general (not necessarily locally compact) metric spaces. This permits direct applications to say, parabolic partial differential equations, or functional differential equations. The presentation is self-contained. The subject of the book was previously presented by the author in a series of published papers.
Contents: The homotopy index theory.- Applications to partial differential equations.- Selected topics.- Bibliographical notes and comments.- Bibliography.- Index.
