Existence and comparison results for first order periodic implicit difference equations with maxima. (English) Zbl 1005.39012
Let $\varphi: \bbfR^{T+1} \to\bbfR^{T+1}$ denote the operator defined by $$(\varphi u)_k= \cases \max_{i\in \{0,\dots,k\}} u_i, & 0\le k\le h, \\ \max_{i\in\{k-h, \dots,k\}}u_i, & h<k\le T. \endcases$$ Consider the so-called quasi-linear difference equation with maxima $$\Delta u_k+M u_{k+ 1}+ N(\varphi u)_{k+1}= \sigma_k,\ k\in\{0,1, \dots,T-1\}. \tag *$$ The authors obtain uniqueness and comparison results for solution of (*) satisfying the boundary condition $u_\delta =u_T$. Next the similar problem is studied for nonlinear version of (*) including the proof of existence of solution on the basis of concept of lower and upper solutions. A lot of examples illustrates the obtained results.
