Banach fixed point theorem, one of the most import results in the nonlinear analysis, has a broad application to both pure and applied mathematics. This talk will be focused on the application of Banach point theorem to differential equations, such as the existence and uniqueness of solutions, local bifurcation, etc. In particular, we will use Banach fixed point theorem to prove the existence of an important class of solutions, the traveling wave, for the reaction-diffusion equations that have been served as the models for many problems from sciences.
