Course abstract: We examine from a classical dynamical systems point
of view stability, dynamics, and bifurcation of viscous shock waves and related solutions of nonlinear pde.

Lecture 1 abstract: Stability of viscous shock waves. We discuss the
basic types of viscous shock waves, the Evans function condition
and its meaning, and outline a basic one-dimensional stability proof assuming that the Evans condition holds.
