Applied Mathematics versus Fluid Dynamics The Catalytic Role of Richard von Mises (1883–1953)
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)This paper investigates scientific, institutional, and political conflict and collaboration between two different disciplines in the first part of the 20th century: applied mathematics and fluid dynamics. It argues for the ... 
Asymptotic behavior of an oddorder delay differential equation
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)We study asymptotic behavior of solutions to a class of oddorder delay differential equations. Our theorems extend and complement a number of related results reported in the literature. An illustrative example is provided. 
Asymptotic behavior of higherorder quasilinear neutral differential equations
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)We study asymptotic behavior of solutions to a class of higherorder quasilinear neutral differential equations under the assumptions that allow applications to even and oddorder differential equations with delayed and ...
