Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The classical existence-and-uniqueness theorem of the solution to a stochastic differential delay equation (SDDE) requires the local Lipschitz condition and the linear growth condition (see e.g. [11], [12] and [20]). The numerical solutions under these conditions have also been discussed intensively (see e.g. [4], [10], [13], [16], [17], [18], [21], [22] and [24]). Recently, Mao and Rassias [14] and [15] established the generalized Khasminskii-type existence-and-uniqueness theorems for SDDEs, where the linear growth condition is no longer imposed. These generalized Khasminskii-type theorems cover a wide class of highly nonlinear SDDEs but these nonlinear SDDEs do not have explicit solutions, whence numerical solutions are required in practice. However, there is so far little numerical theory on SDDEs under these generalized Khasminskii-type conditions. The key aim of this paper is to close this gap.
