Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Neutral stochastic differential delay equations (NSDDEs) have recently been studied intensively (see e.g. [V.B. Kolmanovskii, V.R. Nosov, Stability and Periodic Modes of Control Systems with Aftereffect, Nauka, Moscow, 1981; X. Mao, Exponential stability in mean square of neutral stochastic differential functional equations, Systems Control Lett. 26 (1995) 245–251; X. Mao, Razumikhin type theorems on exponential stability of neutral stochastic functional differential equations, SIAM J. Math. Anal. 28(2) (1997) 389–401; X. Mao, Stochastic Differential Equations and Their Applications, Horwood Publishing, Chichester, 1997]). More recently, Mao [Asymptotic properties of neutral stochastic differential delay equations, Stochastics and Stochastics Rep. 68 (2000) 273–295] provided with some useful criteria on the exponential stability for NSDDEs. However, the criteria there require not only the coefficients of the NSDDEs to obey the linear growth condition but also the time delay to be a constant. One of our aims in this paper is to remove these two restrictive conditions. Moreover, the key condition on the diffusion operator associated with the underlying NSDDE will take a much more general form. Our new stability criteria not only cover many highly non-linear NSDDEs with variable time delays but they can also be verified much more easily than the known criteria.
