### Continuous dependence of the solution of a system of differential equations with impulses on the initial condition

**Abstract. The initial value problem for systems of differential equations with impulses is ** **considered. For the systems under consideration the impulses are realized at the moments when the ** **integral curves meet some of previously fixed hypersurfaces in the extended phase space. Sufficient ** **conditions for the continuous dependence of solutions on the initial conditions are found.**

### 1. Introduction. Systems of differential equations with impulses provide an adequate mathematical description of numerous phenomena and processes studied by physics, chemistry, radiotechnics, etc. By means of such systems phenomena and processes subject to short-time perturbations during their evolution are studied. The duration of the perturbations is négligeable in comparison with the duration of the phenomena and processes considered, therefore they are regarded as “momentary” of the type of “impulses”.

### The first publications on mathematical theory of systems with impulses were by V. Milman and A. Myshkis [5] (1960) and [6] (1963). This new and perspective theory was developed further in the works of A. Samoilenko [13]

### (1961) and [14] (1962), T. Pavlidis [11] (1967), V. Raghavendra and M. Rao [12] (1974), S. Pandit [7] (1977), [8] (1980), etc. Recently the interest in systems of differential equations with impulses has grown considerably due to nume

### rous applications of these systems to mathematical control theory. The first two monographs dedicated to this subject appeared, by Halanai and Veksler [3] (1974) and by S. Pandit and S. Deo [10] (1982). Systems of differential equations with impulses are also the subject of the present paper.

### 2. Preliminaries. Consider the hypersurfaces

### (1) Grf: *t = tt(x), * *te R , * *x e* *D, i = 1, 2, ...,* *where D is a domain in Rn.*

*Denote by Pt a point with current coordinates (t , x{t)) such that the law of * its motion is described by means of:

*a) the set of hypersurfaces <rf, i = 1, 2 , . . . , defined by (1);*

*b) a set of functions ij: D->R", i = 1, 2, ...;*

### c) a system of ordinary differential equations

*— = f ( t , x), * *dx* *t ф т(, i = 1, 2, ...,*

### ( **2** ^{)}

*where/: S -^ R n, S = {(t , x): t ^ 0 , x e D } . The points zt, i = 1, 2, * satisfy

### ing the inequalities

### (3) 0 < tj < i 2 <

*are the moments at which the mapping point Pt meets the hypersurfaces (1). *

*Note that Pt meets the hypersurfaces (1) only at the moments тг;*

### d) the equalities

### (4) *х(т,. + 0 )-х (т г- 0 ) = 1]{(х( т,.)), * *i= 1 , 2 , . . . ,*

*where / is the number of the hypersurface met by Pt at the moment тг. In * *general it is possible that i Ф / (examples can be given such that for some i the * *inequality i < / holds, as well as examples for which i = / or i > /).*

### We assume further that х(т;) = х(т; —0), i.e. x is left continuous at тг, *i= 1 , 2 ,. ..*

*The set of objects a), b), c) and d) which determines the motion of Pt is * *called a system of differential equations with impulses. The law of motion of Pt is * *called a solution of the system of differential equations with impulses and the * *curve described by this point is called an integral curve of that system.*

### In the present paper the initial value problem for such a system is considered with the initial condition

### (5) x(0) = xo, *x0eD.*

*We shall give a brief description of the motion of Pt along the integral * *curve of this initial value problem. The initial position of Pt is (0, x0). For * *0 ^ t ^ i j , Pt moves along the integral curve of (2) with initial condition (5). At * *the moment i l5 Pt meets the hypersurface uh at the point (il5 x x) where * xx = x C tj ) and “jumps instantly” from ( t 1# xx) to ( t *1, x 1 + Ijl(xi)). Further on * it moves along the integral curve of (2) with initial point ( t *1? x 1 + IJi(x1)) until * the moment t *2 when it meets the hypersurface ah , “jumps” again, etc. If after * *a “jump” the point Pt meets a hypersurface from (1), then a new “jump” at this * moment is not realized.

### The solution of such a system is a piecewise continuous function with points of discontinuity of 1st type at which it is left continuous.

*We shall use the following notation: xt = х(тг); x f = х,. + / л(х{), * *i = l , 2 , . . . ; т0 = 0, j 0 = 0, £0(x) = 0 for x e D , X* q * = x0; by x(t, i*, x*) we * denote the solution of the system with impulses with the initial condition

### x ( t *, t **, x*j = x*; x(t) = x(t, 0, x0); <■, •) is the Euclidean scalar product in * *Rn; || • || is the Euclidean norm in Rn; * *q* *(A, В) is the Euclidean distance between * *the nonempty sets A and В in Rn. The set of points (t , x ) E R x R n satisfying * *t — x* ^ L||x — x*|| where (* t *, x **) is a fixed point in R x Rn and L is a positive * *constant will be denoted by K(z*, x*, L).*

### The qualitative theory of systems with impulses in the case when the

*functions ti5 i = 1 , 2 , . . . , are constant, therefore tfx) = тг, xeD (i.e.' when the*

### impulses are realized at fixed moments), is comparatively better developed than *in the case when the t( are not constant. One of the reasons is that in general it * is possible for the integral curve of a system with impulses to meet repeatedly one and the same hypersurface from (1). This phenomenon is called “beating”.

### When “beating” is present, the integral curve need not be defined for *t sufficiently large. Hence one cannot claim that, e.g., the solution of the system * depends continuously on the initial condition in a given finite interval since it need not be defined in this interval. In the following example “beating” is observed.

### E

x a m p l e*1. Let n = 1, D = (0, + * oo), t f(x) = arc tan x + m , x e f i , i = 1, 2, .. . *Then for every choice of functions / and I t, i = 1, 2, ..., such that:*

*a) / ensures the existence and uniqueness of the solution of (2) for t ^ 0;*

*b) Ifx ) > 0, x eD ,*

*the integral curve (t, x(t, 0, * ^{x 0)) } “beats” on the hypersurface (in this case on the *curve) t = tj(x) for every choice of the initial point (0, x0) such that x0 > 0. *

### What is more, in this case the solution of the equation with impulses is not *defined for t ^ n/2.*

### 3. Main results

### 1. *Continuous dependence on the initial condition when “beating” is absent. *

### Denote by (A) the following conditions:

*Al. For t ^ 0 the function f is continuous in its first argument and * uniformly Lipschitz in x e fi with a constant L.

*A2. There exists a positive constant M such that \\f(t, x)|| < M for * *{t,x)eS.*

*A3. The functions tt are Lipschitz in x e D with respective constants * *Lt < 1/M, i = 1 ,2 , .. .*

### A4. The inequalities

### (6) *0 < ц(х) < t2(x) < ..., * *x e D* *hold and lim^*, tt(x) = + * oo *uniformly in x e D .*

*A5. tfa + Ifx)) ^ ti(x), x e D , i = 1 , 2 , . . .*

*A6. The integral curve (t , x(t)) of the system x(t) = x(t, 0, x0) does not * *leave the set S for t e l where*

### We shall show that conditions (A) are sufficient for the absence of

### “beating”. For this purpose we shall use the following theorem.

### T

*1. Conditions A2, A3, A5 and A6 are satisfied.*

**i = 1**

### У (if-i, t J otherwise.

### if there are finitely many moments xi?

*Then the integral curve * **(t, ** *x(t)) of the system with initial condition * **(5) ** *meets * *each of the hypersurfaces (1) not more than once.*

### By means of Theorem 1 we get the following assertion:

**T** **heorem** ** 2. ** *Let conditions (A) hold. Then the integral curve * **(t, x(t)) ** *meets * *each of the hypersurfaces (1) not more than once and x(t) = x(t, 0, x 0) exists for * *all t ^ 0.*

*Proof. If (t, x(t)) meets no hypersurface from (1) for t > 0 then the proof * *is trivial. Suppose that (t , x(f)) meets at least one hypersurface from (1) for * *t > 0. Conditions A1 and A6 imply the existence and uniqueness of the * *solution x(t) for t e l .*

*Since for i f < t ^ Tj + 1 the solution x(t) coincides with the solution of the * integral equation

*(7) * *x(t) = x f + f f (* t , x ( t )) *dr, * *i = 0 , 1 , . . . ,* ti

*by A2 for t = * 1 , 4-1 we obtain

### (8) lk-+i-X i+ ll ^ М(т/+1- ^ ) ,

*i.e. condition 2 of Theorem 1 is satisfied. Thus, according to Theorem 1, (t, x(t)) * meets each of the hypersurfaces (1) not more than once.

*Finally, we shall show that x(t) is continuable for t ^ 0. In fact, if (t, x(t)) * *meets a finite number of hypersurfaces from (1) for t > 0, then the claim follows * directly from A1 and A6. Suppose that (t, x(t)) meets infinitely many *hypersurfaces from (1). We shall show that j i+1 > j t, i = 1 , 2 , . . . {jt is the * *number of the hypersurface met by the integral curve at the moment i f * *Suppose that this is not true, i.e. j i + l < j { (the equality j i + l = j i is impossible * *since (t , x(t)) meets each of the hypersurfaces (1) not more than once). Then, * according to (6),

**м(Х(т')) <*

*Consider the function q>(t) = £7i(x(t)) — t defined in the interval [т', * t / + 1]. Since *for x' ^ ^ t i + 1 the function x is a solution of the integral equation (7), it * *is continuous in this interval; hence tp is also continuous for x' ^ ^ xi + 1. *

*From (9) and (12) we deduce (p(x')(p(xi+1) < 0. Hence there exists x", * *xt < x' < x" < ij + i, which satisfies (p(x”) — 0, i.e. x" = tj.(x(i")). It follows that * *(t, x(t)) meets the hypersurface иh at the moment x". This contradicts the fact * *that for xt < t < xi+ ! the integral curve (£, x{t)) meets no hypersurface from (1). *

*Hence j i + 1 > j t, i.e.*

### (13) 1 < j 2 < ...

### By (13), since the are positive integers, we obtain l i m ^ ^ = +co; hence, according to A4, we find

### (14) *lim xt = lim t,-.(xf) = + oo.*

*Since x(t) is defined in each of the intervals (* t ;, + *i = 0, 1, ..., and (14) * *holds, we conclude that x(t) is continuable for all t ^ 0.*

### This completes the proof of Theorem 2.

### It may happen that an integral curve of a system of differential equations with impulses, satisfying conditions (A), does not meet all hypersurface from (1), as is seen by the following example.

**E** **xample** *2. Let n = 1, D = (0, +oo), up. t = x + i, i = 1 , 2 , . . . ,* *dx* — = 0, *Ax{f)\t=ti = - x / 2 , i = 1, 2, ... *

*at*

*Conditions (A) are satisfied for M = 1/2, Lt = 1, i = 1 , 2 , . . . Nevertheless for * *x0 > 2 the integral curve (t , x(f)) does not meet the hypersurface (in this case * *the curve) u2.*

**T** **heorem** ** 3. ** *Suppose that* **:** *1. Conditions A1 and A6 hold.*

*2. The functions t ^ i — 1 , 2 , . . . , are continuous in D and the integral curve * *(t, x(t)) for t > 0 meets at least one hypersurface from (1).*

*Then*

### (^ + i - t s(^ i+ i))(^ -ts(^+)) ^ 0, i = 0, 1 , .. ., s = 0, 1,...

### Proof. From A1 and A6 it follows that the solution x(t) with initial *condition (5) exists and is unique in each of the intervals (тг, т[ + 1], i = 0, 1,... *

*Consider the function (p{t) = t — ts(x*(t)) defined in [ if, if+i] where* x*(t) = K ’ t = Ti’

### jx(£), i , < f < T i+1.

*From the continuity of x* it follows that q> is continuous for xt ^ t ^ r[ + 1.*

### Suppose that

### (Ti+ i - t s(xi + 1))(Ti- t sxi+)) < 0.

### Then <р(т{+1)<р(т{) < 0, which implies that there exists T\T{< T ' < T i+1, such *that <р(т') = 0, i.e. %' = £* s ( x ( t *')), which means that (t , x(f)) meets the hypersur*

*face <7S at the moment x'. This contradicts the definition of r f, i = 1, 2, ... (for * T; < £ < тг+1 the integral curve (f, x(£)) meets no hypersurface from (1)).

### This completes the proof of Theorem 3.

### Denote by (B) the following condition.

*B. For each x e D and i = 1, 2, * *tt(x) < £,+ f x + fix)).*

**T** **heorem** *4. Let conditions (A) and (B) be satisfied. Then the integral curve * *(t, x(t)) meets each of the hypersurfaces (1) precisely once.*

### Proofi First we shall show by induction that if at the moment *xt, i = 1, 2, * *the integral curve (£,oc(£)) meets the hypersurface (jj{, then* *j. = j, i= 1,2, ...*

*Suppose that the integral curve meets oy, at the moment xx. Then * *Ti = 0i(x(Ti))- Suppose that j 1 > 1. Then by (6)*

### (15) *Tt = th (x(tj)) = tjfxj) > t f x j .* By the first inequality of (6) we find

*%o = 0 < t f xo) .* Together with (15), this contradicts Theorem 3.

*Suppose th a tjs = s for * **s ** *= 1, 2, . . . , i and the integral curve (t , x(t)) meets * *oji + 1 at the moment t i + 1, i.e. i i+1 = tji + 1(x{Ti + 1)). According to (13) we have *

*; i + 1 ^ i + 1, Suppose that j i + l > i + l . By condition (B) and the inductive * *assumption (jt = i) we obtain*

### (16) *ti + 1{x ? )-T i = ti + 1(xi + I i{xi) ) - t i{xù> * о.

*The assumption j i + 1 > i-t-1 yields*

### Inequalities (16) and (17) contradict Theorem 3.

*Now we shall show that the integral curve (t , x(t)) of the system with * *impulses with initial condition (5) meets cr1. Suppose that (t , x(t)) does not meet * *cr1. Then for t > 0 the integral curve (t , x(t)) meets no hypersurface from (1) at * all (above we have shown that if an integral curve does meet hypersurfaces *from (1), then the first of them is ox). Hence for t ^ 0*

### (18) *t < t^xit)).*

*In fact, if we suppose that there exists x' > 0 such that x' ^ £1(х(т')), then for the *

*function (p{t) — £1(x(£)) — t we find <p(0) > 0 and (p(x')^O. It follows that*

*there exists x" such that <p(x") = 0, i.e. (t , x(t)) meets * By (18), using A2 and A3, we obtain

*(19) contradicts the fact that (18) is satisfied for all t > 0 (and therefore for * *t > const as well).*

### Now suppose that (t, x(t)) meets the hypersurfaces <r1, . . . , at the *respective moments x1, . . . , xt and that for t > тг it meets no hypersurface from * *(1). Then t < ti + 1(x(t)) for all t > xt hence*

*^ ^ 1_L- M +1 * *~~^i+1 * ’ which leads to a contradiction.

### This completes the proof of Theorem 4.

*Let T be an arbitrary positive constant.*

**D** **efinition** ** 1. ** *We shall say that the solution x(t) of a system of differential * *equations with impulses with initial condition x(0) = x 0, defined for 0 ^ t ^ T, * *depends continuously on the initial condition if for every choice of г > 0 and * *ц > 0 there exists Ô = <5(г, rj) > 0 such that each solution у = y(t) of the system * *with initial condition y(0) = y0, where ||x0 — y0|| < <5, satisfies ||x(t) — у (Oil < e * *for 0 < t ^ Ta nd \t — * t *,-| > rj, where * t 1? t 2, ... are the moments at which the *integral curve (t, x(t)) meets the hypersurfaces (1).*

### Denote by (C) the following condition.

*C. The functions It, i = 1, 2, ..., are continuous in D.*

**T** **heorem** *5. Let conditions (A), (B) and (C) hold. Then the solution x(t) of the * *system with impulses depends continuously on the initial condition x(0) = x 0for * *0 ^ t ^ T where T is an arbitrary positive constant.*

*Proof. If for 0 ^ t ^ T the integral curve (t , x(f)) of the problem under * consideration meets no hypersurface from (1), then the proof follows directly from Theorem 2.1 (cf. [4], Ch. 5, §2). Suppose that for 0 *t 5^ T the integral * curve meets at least one hypersurface from (1). Then from (14) it follows that there exists a nonnegative integer p such that

*According to Theorem 4 the integral curve (t, x(t)) meets successively, precisely * *once, each one of the hypersurfaces (1). Hence for 0 ^ t < T the integral curve * *meets successively the hypersurfaces cr1,o’2, ..., op. From (7) for x{ < t ^ тг+1 * *we deduce that the solution x(t) satisfies the integral equation*

### Let y(t) be the solution of the system with impulses with initial condition *y(0) = y0, and let the moments at which the integral curve (t , y(t)) meets the * *hypersurfaces (1) for 0 < t < T be rçl5 ц2, ..., rjq, q = q(T' y0). Analogously to* *(21) for the solution y(t) we obtain*

*6. Let conditions (A), (C) and (D) be fulfilled. Then the solution x{t) * *of the system with impulses depends continuously on the initial condition * *x(0) = x 0 for 0 ^ t ^ T where T is an arbitrary positive constant.*

### Proof. First we shall show that if ||x0 — y0|| is small enough, then for

*0 ^ t < T the integral curves (t , x(t)) and (t, y(t)) either both do not meet, or *

### both meet the same hypersurfaces from (1).

*Assume that (t, x(t)) meets no hypersurfaces from (1) for 0 ^ t ^ T. *

*Denote by A and В the sets*

*A = {{t, x): 0 ^ t ^ T, x = x(t)}, * *B = {{t, x): t = tx(x), xeD}*

*where by D we have denoted the closure of D. Since A and В are closed, A * *is bounded and A n В = 0 , we have * *q* *(A, B) = ex > 0. Applying Theorem 2.1 * (cf. [4], Ch. 5, §2), we conclude that if ||x0 — y0|| is small enough, then j|x(t) — y (f)!l *< £l for 0 ^ t ^ T, which implies that the integral curve (t, y(r)) for * *0 ^ t ^ T meets no hypersurface from (1).*

*Now assume that (t, x(t)) meets some hypersurfaces from (1) for 0 ^ t ^ T. *

### We shall prove that if

### (41) *ts(xf) < T{ < ts+1(Xi+),*

*then s +i = j i + l , i.e. the integral curve (t, x{t)) meets the hypersurface <rs+1 at * *the moment i i + 1. In fact, if we assume that j i + l > s + l , then by (6)* (42) *ta+1(xi+1) < tji + 1{xi+1) = t i+1.*

### Inequality (42) and the second of the inequalities (41) contradict Theorem 3.

*If we assume that j i+1 < s, then the inequality*

### ^•i+l *tji+ifai+i) < ts(Xf + i)*

### and the first of the inequalities (41) contradict Theorem 3.

*If we assume that j i+x = s, then by (41) we obtain*

*Ti+i-T < tji + i(xi + x) - t s(x?) = M*i+i) - * s(*i+) ^ j j W x i + i - x t II,* which contradicts (8).

*Having in mind that lim ^ ^ ts(x?) = + oo and by condition (D) we * *conclude that for any i = 1 , 2 , . . . there exists a nonnegative integer s such that * inequalities (41) hold. Hence

### (43) *tJt + x _ ! (x^) < T; < tj. +, (x +).*

*In order to show that the integral curves (t , x(t)) and (t , y(f)) meet the * *same hypersurfaces for 0 ^ t ^ T it suffices to show that if ||x0 — y0|| is small * enough, then

### (44) *tji + i- x{yf) <Vi < tJi + 1(y?), * *i = 1, 2 , .. ., p,*

*where у? = у{г}{) + (y(rç,)) and j\ is the number of the hypersurface met by * *(t, x(t)) at the moment zt.*

*The two integral curves meet oy at the moments ту and rjx respectively. *

*Assume that for i = 2, 3, ..., s — 1 inequalities (44) hold, i.e. the two integral *

### curves meet successively the hypersurfaces oy, oy2, ..., oys. We shall show that

*for || x0 — y01| small enough inequalities (44) hold for i = s as well, which implies *

*that the two curves meet oys+1 at the moments i s+1 and rjs + 1, respectively.*

### In fact, by the inductive assumption, analogously to (39) it can be shown that for ||x 0 — y 01 | small enough

### (45) *e:-Q's = |т,—f|J < e, * ||x($' + O)-j;(0;4O)|| < 8 .

*Assume that i s < 4s ^ б* (the case * *ts* * > r]s is considered analogously). Then *

### l|x,+ - y s+ ll « l|xs+ - x ( ,Î!)|| + ||x((;s) - y ,+ || M f e - T s)+ ||x ( 0 " + O )-y( 0 " + O)||, which, by (45), gives

### (46) l|xs+ - y s+ || « (M + l)e.

### The first inequality of (45) and inequality (46) imply (47) *e((Ts, xs+), (f]s, y+)) ^ (M 4-2)г.*

### By (43) the point (is, xs+) belongs to the open set

### G = {(t, x): ty. + 1 *-i(x) < t < tjs+1{x), xeD}.*

*From (47) it follows that (rjs, ys+)eG for sufficiently small e, which implies (44) * *for i = s. By induction we see that for ||x* 0 —y0|| small enough inequalities *(44) are satisfied for i — 1, 2 ,..., p.*

*If (t, x(t)) meets no hypersurface from (1) for 0 ^ t ^ T, since for ||x* 0 —y0||

*small enough the integral curve (t , y(t)) also meets no hypersurface from (* 1 ), by *Theorem 2.1 ([4], Ch. 5, §2) we conclude that the solution x(t) of the system * with impulses under consideration depends continuously on the initial con

### dition.

*Assume that (t, x(t)) meets some hypersurfaces from (1) for 0 ^ t ^ T. By * Theorem 2 it meets each hypersurface no more than once. Then by A4 we *conclude that for 0 ^ t ^ T the integral curve (t , x(f)) meets a finite number of * hypersurfaces from (1). Let these be the hypersurfaces < 7 *^ , ah , ..., ajp (jx = 1). *

### For IIx 0 — y 0 * II small enough the integral curve (t, y(t)) meets the same * *hypersurfaces for 0 ^ t ^ T.*
