This books collects the latest results and new trends in the application of Mathematics to some problems in control theory, numerical simulation and differential equations. The work comprises the main results presented at a thematic minisymposium, part of the 9th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2019), held in Valencia, Spain, from 15 to 18 July 2019. The topics covered in the 6 peer-review contributions involve applications of numerical methods to real problems in Oceanography and Naval Engineering, as well as relevant results on switching control techniques, which can have multiple applications in industrial complexes, electro-mechanical machines, biological systems, etc. Problems in control theory, as most engineering problems, are modeled by differential equations, for which standard solving procedures may result insufficient. The book also includes recent geometric and analytical methods for the search of exact solutions for differential equations, which serve as essential tools for analyzing problems in many scientific disciplines.
