Abstract:
In this work, the hybrid fixed point theorem of Krasnoselskii
is used to prove the existence of periodic solutions of the
second-order nonlinear neutral differential equation
$$
\frac{d^2}{dt^2}x(t)+p(t)\frac{d}{dt}x(t)+q(t)x(t)
=\frac{d}{dt}g(t,x(t-\tau(t)))+f(t,x(t),x(t-\tau(t))).
$$
We transform the problem into an integral equation and
uniqueness of the periodic solution, by means of the
contraction mapping principle.
