In the process we use the fundamental matrix solution of x0 (t ) = A(t , u(t ))x(t ) and construct appropriate mappings, where u ∈ C (R, Rn ) is an ω-periodic function. Then we employ matrix measure and the Leray–Schauder fixed point theorem to show the existence of periodic solutions of this neutral differential equation.

1. Introduction The theory of functional differential equations with delay has undergone a rapid development in the last fifty years. More recently researchers have given special attention to the study of neutral functional differential equations. Neutral functional differential equations are not only an extension of functional differential equations but also provide good models in many fields including Biology, Mechanics and Economics. In particular, qualitative analysis such as periodicity and stability of solutions of neutral functional differential equations has been studied extensively by many authors. We refer to [4,7,8,12, 16,20,21] for some recent work on the subject of periodicity and stability of neutral equations. In the last few years, the study of functional differential equations of various classes with infinite delay has acquired an evergrowing interest of many authors. We only mention the works of some authors [2,3,5,6,9,10,14,15,17,18]. It is well known that the development of the theory of functional differential equations with infinite delay primarily depends on the choice of a phase space. Many authors have actively devoted their research to this topic, and various phase spaces have been proposed (see [14] and references cited therein). The global existence of periodic solutions of differential equations and difference equations is a very basic and important problem, which plays a role similar to that of globally stable equilibrium in an autonomous model. Thus, it is reasonable to seek conditions under which the resulting periodic nonautonomous system would have a periodic solution. Much progress has been seen in this direction and many criteria have been established based on different approaches. But, only a few papers

have studied the existence of periodic solutions of neutral functional differential equations with infinite delay (see [1,4,13, 19,22,23]). In addition, to our knowledge, most of the existing research on the stability of partial functional differential equations deals with finite delay. Only a few papers have considered the stability of an equilibrium of the autonomous case of partial functional differential equations with infinite delay. See [3,10]. Using Krasnoselskii’s fixed point theorem and the contraction mapping principle, Islam and Raffoul [15] studied the existence and uniqueness of a periodic solution to the following neutral nonlinear system of differential equations d d x(t ) = A(t )x(t ) + Q (t , x(t − g (t ))) + G(t , x(t ), x(t − g (t ))).

where g ∈ C (R × Rn , Rn ), A ∈ C (R × Rn , Rn×n ), f ∈ C (R × BCh , Rn ), and BCh is called a phase space that will be defined ∂ g (t ,u) in the next section. In addition, for any t ∈ R, u ∈ Rn , ϕ ∈ BCh and s ∈ (−∞, 0], ∂ u ∈ C (R × Rn , Rn×n ), g (t , 0) = 0, A(t + ω, u) = A(t , u), f (t + ω, ϕ) = f (t , ϕ), xt (s) = x(t + s), where ω > 0, and f maps a bounded set into a bounded set. In the analysis, we use the fundamental matrix solution of x0 (t ) = A(t , u(t ))x(t ), where u ∈ C (R, Rn ) is an ω-periodic function. Then we employ matrix measure and the Leray–Schauder fixed point theorem, which is different from the method in [15,19], and show the existence and uniqueness of a periodic solution of Eq. (1.3) in Theorems 3.1 and 3.2. When g (s, u) ≡ 0 and A(t , x) = A(t ), we also obtain the uniform stability and global attractivity of a unique periodic solution of Eq. (1.3) in Theorems 3.3 and 3.4. Our results extend and improve the corresponding results in [19]. 2. Preliminaries Let x = (x1 , x2 , . . . , xn )T ∈ Rn , |x| and kAk = sup|x|6=0 |x| denote the norm of x and the n × n real matrix A, respectively. µ(A) = limε→0 1ε [kI + ε Ak − 1] denotes the matrix measure of the n × n real matrix A. Obviously, if A(t ) is a n × n matrix continuous function and A(t + ω) = A(t ), then µ(A(t )) is an ω-periodic function. Consider the following linear differential equation |Ax|

x0 (t ) = A(t )x(t ),

Consider the Banach space Cω = {u : u ∈ C (R, Rn ), u(t + ω) = u(t ), t ∈ R}

with the norm kuk0 = max0≤t ≤ω |u(t )|, u ∈ Cω , and the Banach space Cω1 = {u : u ∈ C 1 (R, Rn ), u(t + ω) = u(t ), t ∈ R} with the norm kuk1 = kuk0 + ku0 k0 , u ∈ Cω1 . Lemma 2.3. Let M > 0, S = {u ∈ Cω1 : kuk1 ≤ M }; then f (t , ut ) is uniformly continuous with respect to t ∈ [0, ω] and u ∈ S. Proof. Assume, for the sake of contradiction, that f (t , ut ) is not uniformly continuous with respect to t ∈ [0, ω] and u ∈ S. Then there exists a constant ε0 > 0 such that for any δ > 0, there always exist t , τ ∈ [0, ω] and u, v ∈ S satisfying |t − τ | < δ, ku − vk1 < δ and |f (t , ut ) − f (τ , vτ )| ≥ ε0 . Let δn = 1n . Then there exist sequences {tn }, {τn } ⊆ [0, ω] and {un }, {v n } ⊆ S such that |tn − τn | < 1n , kun − v n k1 < 1n and |f (tn , untn ) − f (τn , vτnn )| ≥ ε0 , n = 1, 2, . . .. Clearly, {tn } contains a convergent subsequence {tnk } which converges to t0 . That is, limk→∞ tnk = t0 . Also, limk→∞ τnk = t0 . Observe that kunk k0 ≤ M , k(unk )0 k0 ≤ M and so {unk (t )} is a family of uniformly bounded and equicontinuous functions on [0, ω]. By using the Arzela–Ascoli Theorem, we know that {unk } contains a subsequence which converges to u0 in Cω . Denote this subsequence {unk }. That is, limk→∞ unk = u0 . Similarly, limk→∞ v nk = v 0 . It is easy to see that n

From Lemma 2.3 in [19], we have |ut0k − u0t0 |h → 0 (k → ∞). Similarly, |vt0k − u0t0 |h → 0 (k → ∞). Then, in view of the continuity of f , it follows from (2.5) that n

|f (tnk , utnk ) − f (τnk , vτnnk )| → 0 (k → ∞). k

This contradicts (2.5) and completes the proof of Lemma 2.3.

In view of the fact f (t + ω, ut +ω ) = f (t , ut ) and the continuity of ∂ u and Set r (t ) = f (t , ut ) + −∞ ∂u f , it follows from Lemma 2.4 that r (t ) is a continuous ω-periodic function. Let Xu (t ) be the fundamental matrix solution of Eq. (3.1). Then from (H1 ) and Lemma 2.2 we see that Eq. (3.2) has a unique ω-periodic solution xu (t ) =

Then, P (S ) is precompact in Cω . Furthermore, for any {Pun }, un ∈ S , n = 1, 2, . . ., there exists a convergent subsequence {Punk } ⊆ {Pun } in Cω . It follows from (3.5) that {(Pu)0 : u ∈ S } is a family of uniformly bounded functions on [0, ω]. For any u ∈ S, we have

(Pu)0 (t1 ) − (Pu)0 (t2 ) = A(t1 , u(t1 ))[(Pu)(t1 ) − (Pu)(t2 )] + [A(t1 , u(t1 )) − A(t2 , u(t2 ))](Pu)(t2 )  Z 0  ∂ g (s, u(t1 + s)) 0 ∂ g (s, u(t2 + s)) 0 + [f (t1 , ut1 ) − f (t2 , ut2 )] + u (t1 + s) − u (t2 + s) ds. ∂u ∂u −∞ In view of the uniform continuity of A(t , x) on {(t , x) : 0 ≤ t ≤ ω, |x| ≤ δ}, it follows from Lemmas 2.3 and 2.4 that {(Pu)0 : u ∈ S } is a family of equicontinuous functions on [0, ω]. Therefore, there exists a convergent subsequence {(Punkl )0 } ⊆ {(Punk )0 } in Cω . Further, there exists a convergent subsequence {Punkl } ⊆ {Punk } in Cω1 . That is, P is compact on Cω1 . Next, we shall prove the continuity of P. Let un , u0 ∈ Cω1 , kun − u0 k1 → 0 (n → ∞) and vn = Pun − Pu0 . Clearly,

Let c = sup{ku0 k1 , ku1 k1 , ku2 k1 , . . .}. In view of the uniform continuity of A(t , x) on {(t , x) : 0 ≤ t ≤ ω, |x| ≤ c }, it follows from Lemmas 2.3 and 2.4 that kfn k0 → 0 (n → ∞). Let Xn (t ) be the fundamental matrix solution of x0 (t ) = A(t , un (t ))x(t ). In view of the fact that vn (t ) is an ω-periodic solution of Eq. (3.6), it follows from Lemma 2.2 that

In view of the fact that kfn k0 → 0 (n → ∞), it follows from the Lebesgue dominated convergence theorem that kvn k0 → 0 (n → ∞). From (3.6) we have

|vn 0 (t )| ≤ kA(t , un (t ))kkvn k0 + kfn k0 ≤ βkvn k0 + kfn k0 . Hence, kvn 0 k0 → 0. Furthermore, kvn k1 = kvn k0 + kvn 0 k0 → 0 (n → ∞). That is, P is continuous on Cω1 . Consequently, P is a completely continuous operator on Cω1 . Let W = {u : u = λPu, 0 < λ < 1, u ∈ Cω1 } and Q = {kuk1 : u ∈ W }. If u ∈ W , then from (3.4), for any t ∈ [0, ω],

It follows from Lemma 2.5 that P has a fixed point u∗ in Cω1 satisfying ku∗ k1 ≤ N + η. That is, u∗ is a differentiable ω-periodic solution of Eq. (1.3). The proof of Theorem 3.1 is complete.  Remark 3.1. When g (s, u) = Q (s)u, Theorem 3.1 reduces to Theorem 3.1 in [19]. Thus, Theorem 3.1 generalizes Theorem 3.1 in [19]. In addition, in this paper, we use the Leray–Schauder fixed point theorem which is different from the method in [19], and the proof of Theorem 3.1 is simpler than that in [19]. Consider the special case of Eq. (1.3), namely, d dt

Clearly, the conditions in Theorem 3.1 are satisfied. Therefore, Eq. (3.7) has at least one differentiable ω-periodic solution x(t ). Now, we shall prove the uniqueness of the ω-periodic solution of Eq. (3.7). Otherwise, let y(t ) be another ω-periodic solution of Eq. (3.7) with kx − yk0 > 0.

Consider the special case of Eq. (3.7) x0 (t ) = A(t )x(t ) + f (t , xt ).

(3.8)

We give sufficient conditions to guarantee the uniform stability and global attractivity of the unique ω-periodic solution of Eq. (3.8). In order to state our results, we need the following definitions. Definition 3.1. Let u(t ) be a periodic solution of Eq. (3.8). u(t ) is said to be uniformly stable if, for any ε > 0, t0 ≥ 0, there is a δ = δ(ε) > 0 such that ϕ ∈ BCh and |ϕ − ut0 |h < δ imply |x(t , t0 , ϕ) − u(t )| < ε, t ≥ t0 , where x(t , t0 , ϕ) is a solution of Eq. (3.8) and satisfies the initial condition xt0 = ϕ . Definition 3.2. Let u(t ) be a periodic solution of Eq. (3.8). u(t ) is said to be globally attractive if, for any ϕ ∈ BCh , t0 ≥ 0, limt →+∞ |x(t , t0 , ϕ) − u(t )| = 0, where x(t , t0 , ϕ) is a solution of Eq. (3.8) and satisfies the initial condition xt0 = ϕ .

Theorem 3.3. In Eq. (3.8), assume that:

Rω  (H5 ) For any t ∈ R, µ(A(t )) ≤ 0 and k = exp 0 µ(A(t ))dt < 1; (H6 ) There exists a constant a > kln−k1 such that for any t ∈ R, ϕ1 , ϕ2 ∈ BCh , 1

|f (t , ϕ1 ) − f (t , ϕ2 )| ≤ − µ(A(t )) |ϕ1 − ϕ2 |h . a

Then Eq. (3.8) has a unique ω-periodic solution which is uniformly stable. Proof. From (H5 ) and (H6 ), we see that the conditions of Theorem 3.2 are satisfied. It follows from Theorem 3.2 that Eq. (3.8) has a unique ω-periodic solution u(t ). In view of  the fact that 0 < k < 1 implies ln k < k − 1, we have a > 1. For any ε > 0, t0 ≥ 0 and ϕ ∈ BCh , choose δ = min (a − 1)ε, a−1 1 ε . Let |ϕ − ut0 |h < δ , and x(t ) = x(t , t0 , ϕ) be a solution satisfying the initial condition xt0 = ϕ for Eq. (3.8). Let X (t ) represent the fundamental matrix solution of Eq. (2.1). Then t

Now, we shall prove that for any t ≥ t0 , |x(t )− u(t )| < ε . Otherwise, there exists a constant t1 > t0 such that |x(t )− u(t )| < ε for any t0 ≤ t < t1 , but |x(t1 ) − u(t1 )| = ε . From Lemma 2.1, we have

This is a contradiction. Hence, u(t ) is uniformly stable. The proof of Theorem 3.3 is complete.



Remark 3.2. Theorem 3.3 in [19] required that a > max 3, k−1 . But, in Theorem 3.3, we only require that a > Consequently, Theorem 3.3 improves Theorem 3.3 in [19].

|f (t , ϕ1 ) − f (t , ϕ2 )| ≤ − µ(A(t )) |ϕ1 (0) − ϕ2 (0)|. a

Then Eq. (3.8) has a unique ω-periodic solution which is not only uniformly stable but also globally attractive.

Proof. In view of the fact that |ϕ1 (0) − ϕ2 (0)| ≤ |ϕ1 − ϕ2 |h , it follows from (H5 ) and (H7 ) that the conditions in Theorem 3.3 are satisfied. Hence, Eq. (3.8) has a unique and uniformly stable ω-periodic solution u(t ). For any ϕ ∈ BCh , t0 ≥ 0, let x(t ) = x(t , t0 , ϕ) be a solution satisfying the initial condition xt0 = ϕ for Eq. (3.8).

It follows from Theorem 3.2 that Eq. (3.9) has a unique 2π -periodic solution. But Theorem 3.2 in [19] cannot be used to obtain the existence and uniqueness of 2π -periodic solution of Eq. (3.9).

It follows from Theorem 3.3 that Eq. (3.10) has a unique 2π -periodic solution which is uniformly stable. Remark 3.3. In Eq. (3.10), there is no constant a > 3 such that 1

|f (t , ϕ1 ) − f (t , ϕ2 )| ≤ − µ(A(t ))|ϕ1 − ϕ2 |h . a

Consequently, Theorem 3.3 in [19] cannot be used to obtain the uniqueness and uniformly stability of the 2π -periodic solution of Eq. (3.10). In fact, x(t ) = sin t is a unique and uniformly stable 2π -periodic solution of Eq. (3.10).
