Dr. Xiao-Qiang Zhao is a professor in applied mathematics at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. His main research interests involve applied dynamical systems, nonlinear differential equations, and mathematical biology. He is the author of more than 40 papers and his research has played an important role in the development of the theory of periodic and almost periodic semiflows and their applications.
"In this interesting book an introduction to the theory of nonautonomous semiows on metric spaces is presented and several applications to population dynamics are given. More attention is paid to periodic and almost periodic models. ... The mathematician interested in mathematical biology will find this book useful. It may be used as a supplementary textbook for graduate topics related to applications of dynamical systems on mathematical biology. The book includes an impressive list of references."
