Theory of impulsive differential equations. (English) Zbl 0719.34002

Series in Modern Applied Mathematics, 6. Singapore etc.: World Scientific. x, 273 p. $ 58.00/hbk (1989).
The monograph summarizes results obtained by the authors and their colleagues and by the Soviet groups of Myshkis, Samoilenko, Perestyuk (there are 76 references, 57 belonging to these groups). Although there are illustrative examples (some of them interesting) there are no applications. With an extended use of inequalities and comparison arguments, most of the book is devoted to stability.
Chapter 1 introduces the impulsive evolution processes, presents preliminary results and examples. In Chapter 2 variation of parameters formulae, upper and lower solutions, monotone iterative techniques, simple stability criteria are considered. Chapter 3 is devoted to the study of stability by means of discontinuous Lyapunov functions and impulsive differential inequalities. In Chapter 4 different other aspects of impulsive systems are discussed.
