In this thesis we construct a perturbation method for delay differential equations (DDEs) based on the method of multiple scales for ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and ordinary difference equations (O$\Delta$Es). The method works for nonlinear DDEs, which are linear DDEs in the unperturbed case. The validity of the method is proven under...
