  1. Does anyone know of how I can relate the importance of the monostable
    multivibrator to day-to-day applications? I only know of its
    application in rising/falling edge detectors

    If you think *detection* is the most important part of that app,
    you have missed the entire point.

    A mm. is typically used in pulse generators that is capable to vary its
    pulse width while the frequency remains the same. That is, if the mm. is
    capable to vary the hold time.
    Or, if the mm has a fixed time, the output frequency from the pulse
    generator may vary, and therefore the duty cycle 'll vary.

    Put simply:
    Pulse generator -> Monostable M. -> output

    And you are likely to put an schmitt trigger just after the mm. to get a
    clean pulse.
