Monotone systems theory was originally pioneered by Morris Hirsch in the 1980s [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14]. The theory was further developed by a number of other mathematicians, including Stephen Smale and Hal Smith.

A dynamical system is monotone if its mapping is order preserving, i.e. given any two initial states that are ordered with respect to some partial order, x \leq y, their images are also ordered: \Phi(x) \leq \Phi(y).
