The First Pan-China Conference on Differential Equations was held in Kunming, China in June of 1997. Researchers from around the world attended-including representatives from the US, Canada, and the Netherlands-but the majority of the speakers hailed from China and Hong Kong. This volume contains the plenary lectures and invited talks presented at that conference, and provides an excellent view of the research on differential equations being carried out in China.

Most of the subjects addressed arose from actual applications and cover ordinary and partial differential equations. Topics include:
