On the uniqueness of solutions to a class of discontinuous dynamical systems
Marius F. Danca
The study of uniqueness of solutions of discontinuous dynamical systems has an important implication: multiple solutions to the initial value problem could not be found in real dynamical systems; also the (attracting or repulsive) sliding mode is inherently linked to the uniqueness of solutions. In this paper a strengthened Lipschitz-like condition for differential inclusions and a geometrical approach for the uniqueness of solutions for a class of Filippov dynamical systems are introduced as tools for uniqueness. Several theoretical and practical examples are discussed.
