The Cauchy problem for continuous fuzzy differential equations. (English) Zbl 0929.34005

Summary: The author proves a version of the classical Peano theorem for the initial value problem for a fuzzy differential equation in the metric space of normal fuzzy convex sets with the distance given by the maximum of the Hausdorff distances between level sets.
