Boundedness for impulsive delay differential equations and applications to population growth models. (English) Zbl 1037.34061

Here, the authors apply Lyapunov functions and Razumikhin techniques for the boundedness of the following impulsive functional-differential equation \[ \dot{x}(t)=f(t,x_t),\quad t\neq \tau_k, \qquad \Delta x(t)=I(t,x_t-), \quad t=\tau_k,\;\lim \tau_k=\infty. \] Applications to some population growth models with delays are also given.
