Convexity and quadratic monotone approximation in delay differential equations


  • Radu Precup Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca


In this paper the method of quasiliniarization, an application of Newton's method, recently generalized in [1], is used for the quadratic, monotonic, bilateral approximation of the solution of the delay problem (5). The result is applied to an integral equation from biomathematics.
