Dynamical Bifurcation Theory is concerned with the phenomenathat occur in one parameter families of dynamical systems(usually ordinary differential equations), when theparameter is a slowly varying function of time. During thelast decade these phenomena were observed and studied bymany mathematicians, both pure and applied, from eastern andwestern countries, using classical and nonstandard analysis.It is the purpose of this book to give an account of thesedevelopments. The first paper, by C. Lobry, is anintroduction: the reader will find here an explanation ofthe problems and some easy examples; this paper alsoexplains the role of each of the other paper within thevolume and their relationship to one another.CONTENTS: C.
