ABSTRACT

Consider the linear dynamic equation on time scales (1)

where , , is a rd-continuous function, T is a time scales. In this paper, we shall investigate some results for the exponential stability of the dynamic Equation (1) by combinating the first approximate method and the second method of Lyapunov.

Keywords:

Time Scales, Exponential Stability, Linear Dynamic Equation 1. Introduction

Let be a n-dimension Euclidean space, T be a time scales (a nonempty closed subset of R). We denote . For convenience, we shall use the notions which appear in the book by Bohner and Peterson (see   ). The notions related to the Lyapunov function that we use follow the results of B. Kaymakcalan (see  ). For necessary, we recall them in this process.

We consider a dynamic equation , (2)

where with . We suppose that F satisfies all conditions such that (2) has a unique solution with . In this paper, we define the stable notions of the trivial solution of (2) as the followings:

Definition 1. The trivial solution of (2) is stable on forall , there exists that satisfies then,.

Definition 2. The trivial solution of (2) is asymptotically stable if it is stable and there exists satisfies then

In these definitions, if the numbers and do not depend on, we say that the trivial solution of (2) is uniformly stable (uniformly asymptotically stable).

Definition 3. The trivial solution of (2) is exponential stable on if there exists and with −q is positively regressive which satisfies

In the simple case (see  ), consider the dynamic equation

(3)

The solution of (3) is exponential function. We recall some properties of the exponential function which are used later.

Assume, we denote

Theory of stability of dynamic equation on time scales is an area of mathematics that has recently received a lot of attention (see    - ). And almost of the results which involve the methods of Lyapunov to investigate the stability, have been developed and obtained the interesting results to expand for dynamic equation on time scales. Besides that the criterions and sufficient conditions were given, there were short of some particular examples. We know that the calculus for functions on general time scales is complex and difficult to implement. In order to overcome obstacles, in some cases we can combine the different methods of Lyapunov to investigate the stability of the solution. The content of this paper contains two parts: the first part presents the sufficient conditions following the first approximate method for the exponential stability of the solution of the linear dynamic Equation (1) on time scales. The second one gives some specific examples for applications. Besides the part two we add a theorem about the stability of the solution following the second method of Lyapunov. This theorem can be seen as a corollary of the stable criterion which was presented in  .
