Approximate controllability for integrodifferential equations with multiple delays. (English) Zbl 1176.93018

Summary: This paper considers the approximate controllability for a class of control systems governed by semilinear delay integrodifferential equations with multiple delays. Sufficient conditions for approximate controllability are established by using Schauder’s fixed-point theorem. The results obtained improve some analogous existing results. Several examples are provided to illustrate the application of the approximate controllability result.
