Abstract in English
In this work, we investigate the stability of the trivial solution of the following Measure Differential Equation (MDE) Dx = f(x, t) + g(x, t)Du, (2) where 'B BARRA IND.c' = {x 'PERTENCE A' 'R POT.n'; //x// ' < OU=' c}, f : 'B BARRA IND.c' × [a, b] 'SETA' 'R POT.n' and g : 'B BARRA IND.c' × [a, b] 'SETA' 'R POT. n' , u is function of bounded variation in [a, b] which is also left continuous on (a, b], f(x, ·) is Lebesgue integrable in [a, b] and g(x, ·) is du-integrable in [a, b], f(0, t) = 0 = g(0, t) for all t and Dx, Du denote the derivatives of x and u in the sense of distributions of L. Schwartz. We consider the functions f and g in a general setting. Thus, in order to obtain our results, we prove there is a one-to-one correspondence between the solutions of the MDE 2) in this setting and the solutions of a certain class of generalized ordinary differential equation (GODE). In this manner, it was possible to apply the techniques and results from the teory of GODE's, such as Lyapunov-type and converse Lyapunov-type theorems, to obtain the corresponding results for our MDE (2). The results presented in this work concerning the stability of the trivial solution of the MDE (2) are new. Some of them were presented at the 66th Seminário Brasileiro de Análise. See [7]
