Title: Existence and uniqueness of a local solution for $x' = f(t,x)$
using inverse functions
Author: Jeffrey T. Hoag (Providence College, Providence RI, USA)
Abstract:
A condition on the function $f$ is given such that the scalar ordinary
differential equation $x' = f(t,x)$ with initial condition
$x(t_0) = x_0$ has a unique solution in a neighborhood of $t_0$.
An example illustrates that this result can be used when other theorems
which put conditions on the difference $f(t,x)-f(t,y)$ do not apply.
