1999 Existence and stability of solutions to partial functional-differential equations with delay

Adv. Differential Equations 4(6): 843-876 (1999).


Results on (a) the existence and (b) asymptotic stability of mild and of strong solutions to the nonlinear partial functional differential equation with delay $ (FDE) \; \, \dot{u} (t) + B u(t) \ni F(u_t), \; t \geq 0 , \; u_0 = \varphi \in E, $ are presented. The `partial differential expression' $B$ will be a, generally multivalued, accretive operator, and the history-responsive operator $F$ will be allowed to be (defined and) Lipschitz continuous on `thin' subsets of the initial-history space $E $ of functions from an interval $I \subset (-\infty,0] $ to the state Banach space $X.\,$ As one of the main results, it is shown that the well-established solution theory on strong, mild and integral solutions to the undelayed counterpart to (FDE) of the nonlinear initial-value problem $ (CP) \; \, \dot{u} (t) + B u(t) \ni f(t), \; t \geq 0 , \; u(0) = u_0 \in X, $ can fully be extended to the more general initial-history problem (FDE). The results are based on the relation of the solutions to (FDE) to those of an associated nonlinear Cauchy problem in the initial-history space $E. $ Applications to models from population dynamics and biology are presented.
