Global attraction in a system of delay differential equations via compact and convex sets

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(3) Related Papers Cited by
  • We provide sufficient conditions for a concrete type of systems of delay differential equations (DDEs) to have a global attractor. The principal idea is based on a particular type of global attraction in difference equations in terms of nested, convex and compact sets. We prove that the solutions of the system of DDEs inherit the convergence to the equilibrium from an associated discrete dynamical system.

    Figure 3.  Possible behaviour of $ x(t, \phi) $ (blue). The boundary of the set $ K_2 $ is represented in black. The boundaries of $ K_{2, \mu} $, for some values $ \mu>1 $ are represented in grey. The blue arrow represents $ x'(t, \phi) $, which "points to the interior" of a $ K_{2, \mu} $. $ f(K_2) $ is represented in red. The equilibrium $ z_* $ is depicted as a point inside $ f(K_2) $ (color figure online)
