Monotonicity formulae are an indispensable tool for extracting information about solutions of ODEs and PDEs directly from the structure of the equations, especially when explicit solutions are not readily available. In this talk, we introduce the notion of a monotonicity formula and outline how such formulae may be used to draw certain conclusions about solutions of certain differential equations.
