Abstract:
We prove averaging theorems for non-autonomous ordinary
differential equations and retarded functional differential equations
in the case where the vector fields are continuous in the spatial
variable uniformly with respect to the time and the solution of
the averaged system exists on some given interval.
Our assumptions are weaker than those required in the results of
the existing literature. Usually, we require that the non-autonomous
differential equation and the autonomous averaged equation
are locally Lipschitz and that the solutions of both equations
exist on some given interval. Our results are formulated in classical
mathematics. Their proofs use the stroboscopic method which is
a tool of the nonstandard asymptotic theory of differential equations.
