H., & Le, T. P. N. (2006). Boundary and initial value problems for second-order neutral functional differential equations. Electronic Journal of Differential Equations, 2006(62), pp. 1-19. en_US dc.identifier.issn 1072-6691 dc.identifier.uri https://digital.library.txstate.edu/handle/10877/13935 dc.description.abstract In this paper, we consider the three-point boundary-value problem for the second order neutral functional differential equation `u″ + ƒ(t, ut, u′(t)) = 0, 0 ≤ t ≤ 1,` with the three-point boundary condition u0 = ϕ, u(1) = u(η). Under suitable assumptions on the function ƒ we prove the existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence of solutions. As an application of the methods used, we study the existence of solutions for the same equation with a "mixed" boundary condition u0 = ϕ, u(1) = α[u′(η) - u′(0)], or with an initial condition u0 = ϕ, u′(0) = 0. For the initial-value problem, the uniqueness and continuous dependence of solutions are also considered. Furthermore, the paper shows that the solution set of the initial-value problem is nonempty, compact and connected. Our approach is based on the fixed point theory. dc.format Text dc.format.extent 19 pages dc.format.medium 1 file (.pdf) dc.language.iso en en_US dc.publisher Texas State University-San Marcos, Department of Mathematics en_US dc.source Electronic Journal of Differential Equations, 2006, San Marcos, Texas: Texas State University-San Marcos and University of North Texas. dc.subject Three-point boundary-value problem en_US dc.subject Topological degree en_US dc.subject Leray-Schauder nonlinear alternative en_US dc.subject Contraction mapping principle en_US dc.title Boundary and initial value problems for second-order neutral functional differential equations en_US dc.type publishedVersion txstate.documenttype Article dc.rights.license This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
