Fixed points and stability in neutral differential equations with variable delays. (English) Zbl 1136.34059

This paper deals with the asymptotic stability of a scalar neutral delay differential equation by means of the contraction mapping theorem, not the Lyapunov direct method. Some examples are included to illustrate the importance of the results.
