Dedicated to Professor S. Leela in recognition of her significant contribution to the field of nonlinear dynamics and differential equations, this text consists of 38 papers contributed by experts from 15 countries, together with a survey of Professor Leela's work. The first group of papers examines stability, the second process controls, and the third section contains papers on various topics, including solutions for new classes of systems of equations and boundary problems, and proofs of basic theorems. Many of the featured problems are associated with the ideas and methods proposed and developed by Professor Leela.
