This work is based on the International Symposium on Comparison Methods and Stability Theory held in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It presents advances in comparison methods and stability theory in a wide range of nonlinear problems, covering a variety of topics such as ordinary, functional, impulsive, integro-, partial, and uncertain differential equations.
