In this talk, I am going to give a elementary introduction of invariant manifold theory in dynamical systems. I will start with the motivation and definition of invariant manifolds. Then I will discuss how to construct various invariant manifolds of maps and flows. Finally, I will discuss some applications. If time is permitted, I will also discuss a little about invariant foliation.
