Abstract : The thesis investigates stable, asymptotically stable and unstable dynamical systems from a topological point of view with direct application and interpretation to systems of differential equations. Knowledge of topology is not a prerequisite. Specifically, such concepts as Poisson and Liapunov stability as well as parallelizable and dispersive systems are investigated. (Author)
