Peano's Existence Theorem revisited

  title={Peano's Existence Theorem revisited},
  author={Rodrigo L'opez Pouso},
  journal={arXiv: Classical Analysis and ODEs},
We present new proofs to four versions of Peano's Existence Theorem for ordinary differential equations and systems. We hope to have gained readability with respect to other usual proofs. We also intend to highlight some ideas due to Peano which are still being used today but in specialized contexts: it appears that the lower and upper solutions method has one of its oldest roots in Peano's paper of 1886. 
On the existence and uniqueness of solutions to dynamic equations
In this paper, we prove the well-known Cauchy–Peano theorem for existence of solutions to dynamic equations on time scales. Some simple examples are given to show that there may exist more than a
Peano’s 1886 existence theorem on first-order scalar differential equations: a review
In 1886 Giuseppe Peano presents the first proof of the existence of a solution of an initial value problem $$y^\prime =f(x,y)$$y′=f(x,y), $$y(a)=b$$y(a)=b, under the assumption of the continuity of
Extremal solutions of systems of measure differential equations and applications in the study of Stieltjes differential problems
We use lower and upper solutions to investigate the existence of the greatest and the least solutions for quasimonotone systems of measure differential equations. The established results are then


Elementary proofs of Peano's existence theorem
An “elementary” proof of Peano's existence theorem is given that, in addition to avoiding the Ascoli lemma, relies neither on Dini's theorem, nor on uniform continuity of the right hand side of φ' =
Necessary conditions for solving initial value problems with infima of superfunctions
Goodman proved that the pointwise infimum of all superfunctions is the minimal absolutely continuous solution of x′ = f (t, x), t ∈ [0, 1], x(0) = 0, in case f is a L1 -bounded Caratheodory function.

In 1964 the author's mono graph "Differential- und Integral-Un gleichungen," with the subtitle "und ihre Anwendung bei Abschatzungs und Eindeutigkeitsproblemen" was published. The present volume grew
First-Order Singular and Discontinuous Differential Equations
We use subfunctions and superfunctions to derive sufficient conditions for the existence of extremal solutions to initial value problems for ordinary differential equations with discontinuous and
Two-Point Boundary Value Problems: Lower and Upper Solutions
Minimal and maximal solutions to second‐order boundary value problems with state‐dependent deviating arguments
We prove the existence of solutions between given lower and upper solutions for second‐order boundary value problems with deviating arguments, and we show that the set of those solutions has minimal
An introduction to delay differential equations with applications to the life sciences / Hal Smith
The simplicity of the Delay Equation and its application to linear systems and linearization suggest the existence of solutions to the persistent problem of infectious disease.
