 This volume contains expository lectures from the CBMS Regional Conference held at Harvey Mudd College, June 1977. The conference was supported by the National Science Foundation. The main theme of this monograph consists of applications to nonlinear differential equations of the author's coincidental degree. It includes an extensive bibliography covering many aspects of the modern theory of nonlinear differential equations and the theory of nonlinear analysis. Readership Reviews "A beautiful and clearly written monograph which provides an easy access to several very active research areas of nonlinear differential equations and nonlinear analysis."  K. Schmitt, Mathematical Reviews Table of Contents  Introduction
