Smooth solutions to some differential-difference equations of neutral type
The following two settings are considered
(1) To find an initial function g(t) defined on the initial set t ∈ [t 0 − 1, t 4] such that the continuous solution x(t), t > t 0, generated by g(t) possesses the required smoothness at points divisible by the delay time. For the investigation, we apply the inverse initial-value problem method.
(2) Let a(t), b(t), p(t), and f(t) be polynomials and let the initial value x(0) = x 0 be assigned at the initial point t = 0. Polynomials satisfying the initial-value condition are considered as quasi-solutions to the original equation. After substitution of a polynomial of degree N for x(t) in the original equation, there appears a residual Δ(t) = O(t N ), for which sharp estimates are obtained by the method of polynomial quasi-solutions. Since polynomial quasi-solutions may contain free parameters, the problem of minimization of the residual on some interval can be considered on the basis of variational criteria.
