Ordinary differential equations the solution of which are ACG\(_ *\)- functions. (English) Zbl 0756.34003

This paper is devoted to the fundamental Cauchy problem for ordinary differential systems \(x'=f(t,x)\) when the right-hand member does not satisfy the Carathéodory conditions. Indeed, the equivalent integral equation \[ x(t)=x(r)+\int^ t_ rf(s,x(s))ds \] is considered where the integral is considered in the sense of Perron. Some conditions for the existence of a local solution for this problem were obtained in the book “Lectures on the Theory of Integration” of R. Henstock (1988; Zbl 0668.28001). It is proved in the present paper that the conditions of Henstock hold if and only if \(f(t,x)=h(t,x)+g(t)\), where \(g\) is Perron integrable and \(h\) satisfies the classical Carathéodory conditions.
