Abstract
Alexseev’s formula generalizes the variation of constants formula and permits the study of a nonlinear perturbation of a system with certain stability properties. In this paper, we investigate bounds for solutions of the functional nonlinear perturbed differential systems using the two notion of h -stability and t -similarity.
Keywords
1. INTRODUCTION
The behavior of solutions of a perturbed system is determined in terms of the behavior of solutions of an unperturbed system. There are three useful methods for showing the qualitative behavior of the solutions of perturbed nonlinear system : the use of integral inequalities, the method of variation of constants formula, and Lyapunov’s second method.
The notion of h -stability (hS) was introduced by Pinto [15 , 16] with the intention of obtaining results about stability for a weakly stable system (at least, weaker than those given exponential asymptotic stability) under some perturbations. That is, Pinto extended the study of exponential asymptotic stability to a variety of reasonable systems called h -systems. Also, he studied some general results about asymptotic integration and gave some important examples in  . Choi and Koo  , Choi and Ryu  , and Choi et al. [4 , 5 , 6] investigated h -stability and bounds of solutions for the perturbed functional differential systems. Also, Goo [8 , 9 , 10] studied the boundedness of solutions for the perturbed differential systems.
The main conclusion to be drawn from this paper is that the use of inequalities provides a powerful tool for obtaining bounds for solutions.
2. PRELIMINARIES
We consider the nonlinear nonautonomous differential system PPT Slide

where f C (ℝ + × ℝ n ,ℝ n ), ℝ + = [0, ∞) and ℝ n is the Euclidean n -space. We assume that the Jacobian matrix fx = ∂f / ∂x exists and is continuous on ℝ + × ℝ n and f ( t , 0) = 0. Also, consider the functional nonlinear perturbed differential systems of (2.1) PPT Slide

Let x ( t, t 0 , x 0 ) denote the unique solution of (2.1) with x ( t 0 , t 0 , x 0 ) = x 0 , existing on [ t 0 , ∞). Then we can consider the associated variational systems around the zero solution of (2.1) and around x ( t ), respectively, PPT Slide

and Φ( t , t 0 , 0) is the fundamental matrix of (2.3).
We recall some notions of h -stability  .
Definition 2.1. The system (2.1) (the zero solution x = 0 of (2.1)) is called (hS) h-stable if there exist a constant c ≥ 1, and a positive bounded continuous function h on ℝ + such that
x ( t )| ≤ c | x 0 | h ( t ) h ( t 0 ) −1
for t t 0 ≥ 0 and | x 0 | ≤ δ (here PPT Slide

).
Let M denote the set of all n × n continuous matrices A ( t ) defined on ℝ + and N be the subset of M consisting of those nonsingular matrices S ( t ) that are of class C 1 with the property that S ( t ) and S −1 ( t ) are bounded. The notion of t -similarity in M was introduced by Conti  .
Definition 2.2. A matrix A ( t ) ∈ M is t - similar to a matrix B ( t ) ∈ M if there exists an n × n matrix F ( t ) absolutely integrable over ℝ + , i.e., PPT Slide

such that PPT Slide

The notion of t -similarity is an equivalence relation in the set of all n × n continuous matrices on ℝ + , and it preserves some stability concepts [4 , 12] .
In this paper, we investigate bounds for solutions of the nonlinear differential systems using the notion of t -similarity.
We give some related properties that we need in the sequal.

Proof . Let x ( t ) = x ( t , t 0 , y 0 ) and y ( t ) = y ( t , t 0 , y 0 ) be solutions of (2.1) and (2.2), respectively. By Theorem 2.5, since the solution x = 0 of (2.1) is hS, the solution v = 0 of (2.3) is hS. Therefore, by Theorem 2.6, the solution z = 0 of (2.4) is hS. Applying Lemmma 2.3, Lemma 2.4, the increasing property of the function h , (3.1), and (3.2), we have PPT Slide

By Theorem 2.5, since the solution x = 0 of (2.1) is hS, the solution v = 0 of (2.3) is hS. Therefore, by Theorem 2.6, the solution z = 0 of (2.4) is hS. Using the nonlinear variation of constants formula and the hS condition of x = 0 of (2.1), (3.3), and (3.4), we have PPT Slide

since z ( t ) and w ( u ) are nondecreasing and u ( t ) ≤ z ( t ). Therefore, by integrating on [ t 0 , t ], the function z satisfies PPT Slide
