#### Abstract

The asymptotic phase property and reduction principle for stability of a trivial solution is generalized to the case of the noninvertible impulsive differential equations in Banach spaces whose linear parts split into two parts and satisfy the condition of separation.

#### 1. Introduction

The reduction principle in the theory of stability for systems of autonomous differential equations for the first time was proved by Pliss [1]. For systems of nonautonomous differential equations it was extended by Aulbach [2]; see also Pötzsche [3]. The analogy of the reduction principle for differential equations in Banach spaces was proved by Lykova [4] and for nonautonomous difference equations in Banach spaces by Reinfelds and Janglajew [5]. Several works [6, 7] are devoted to different modifications and applications of the reduction principle. In this paper, we generalize the reduction principle to the case of the noninvertible impulsive differential equations in Banach spaces whose linear part split into two parts and satisfy the condition of separation.

#### 2. The Statement of the Problem

Let and be Banach spaces. By and we mean the Banach spaces of bounded linear operators. Consider the following system of impulsive differential equations: where(i)the mappings and are locally integrable in the Bochner sense;(ii)the mappings and are locally integrable in the Bochner sense with respect to for fixed and , and in addition they satisfy the uniform Lipschitz conditions (iii)for , , and , the mappings and satisfy the uniform Lipschitz conditions (iv)the mappings are homeomorphisms;(v)the moments of impulse form a strictly increasing sequence where the limit point may be only .

Without loss of generality we assume that the system (1) has the equilibrium points , ,

Using the suitable bump function it is possible for the analysis of local stability of the trivial solution to reduce to investigation of the global stability of the trivial solution if the nonlinear terms of (1) are uniform Lipschitz with respect to time and with a sufficient small constant in a fixed radius tubular neighbourhood of the trivial solution.

For simplicity, we assume that the linear part of (1) is decoupled in two separate parts. In many cases, this can be reached via the so-called kinematic similarity transformation [8, 9]. More generally via kinematic similarity transformation, the linear system can be reduced to the same almost reducible system [10], a system with a diagonal part and a small nondiagonal part. However, the kinematic transformation can grow unboundedly as the nondiagonal part tends to zero.

*Definition 1 (see [11, 12]). *By the solution to an impulsive system one means a piecewise absolutely continuous mapping with discontinuities of the first kind at the points which for almost all satisfies system (1) and for satisfies the conditions of a “jump.”

Note that condition (v) together with the Lipschitz property with respect to and of the right-hand side ensures that there is a unique solution.

Let be the solution of system (1), where . At the break points the values for all solutions are taken at unless otherwise indicated. For short, we will use the notation .

Let and be the evolutionary operators of the impulsive linear differential equations and, respectively,

We assume that the operators and satisfy the *condition of separation* [7]:
where * is the constant of separation*.

To prove the theorems and lemmas, we use integrals which include evolutionary operators in their integrands. That is why it is more useful to estimate not the evolutionary operators but the corresponding integrals. Doing so, on the one hand, the conditions of theorems and lemmas are released from unnecessary technical limitations and, on the other hand, we obtain the conditions that are close to the necessary conditions.

If , , , and , then . Consequently, the integral converges if the spectrum of the mapping is located to the left of the spectrum of the mapping and the spectra are separated by a vertical line in the complex plane.

Let be a set of mappings that are continuous for and have discontinuities of the first kind for .

The set is a Banach space with the norm are a closed subsets of .

#### 3. Auxiliary Lemma

Multiplying the solution by and integrating from to , we obtain

Multiplying by and summing for all with respect to , we obtain

Summing up we get that

From the last inequality, we get that

Now we estimate the difference taking into consideration the properties of , , and :

Multiplying the difference by and integrating from to , we obtain

Multiplying the difference by and summing for all with respect to , we obtain

Summing up, we get that

Applying the first result of Lemma 2, we get
From the last inequality we easily obtain (11).

#### 4. Existence of a Lipschitz Invariant Manifold

Theorem 3. *If , then there exists a unique piecewise continuous mapping satisfying the following properties:*(i)* for ;*(ii)*;
*(iii)*. *

*Proof. *Consider in the functional equation

It follows that .

Taking into account that and satisfy the uniform Lipschitz conditions, we get that
We have that and is a contraction in , and therefore there is only one solution satisfying the functional equation .

In addition for
Therefore for uniqueness of solutions we get for
The theorem is proven.

#### 5. Behaviour of Solutions in the Neighbourhood of an Invariant Manifold

Theorem 4. *Let . Then the following estimation is valid:
*

The inequality characterizes the integral distance between an arbitrary solution and an invariant manifold.

*Proof. *For an arbitrary map , piecewise continuous from the right with points of discontinuity of the first type, we have the following relation:

Set . Then for we obtain

Let us note that
The third countable can be simplified:

Next we obtain

Now we consider

Thus,

We introduce the expression . For , we obtain the estimation
Multiplying by , integrating, and summing analogously as in auxiliary Lemma 2, we obtain the inequality

#### 6. Asymptotic Phase Type Property

From Theorem 4 of behaviour of solutions, we get inequality (40). Then doing the integration and summing up, inequality (55) is obtained.

*Definition 7. *A trivial solution of impulsive equation (1) is *integral stable* if for all there exists a such that for all and and one has

*Definition 8. *A trivial solution of impulsive equation (1) is asymptotically integral stable if it is integral stable and if there exists a such that for all and one has

Theorem 9. *Let and . The trivial solution of impulsive equation (1) is integral stable, asymptotically integral stable, or integral unstable if and only if the trivial solution of impulsive equation (12) is integral stable, asymptotically integral stable, or integral unstable.*

*Proof. *Suppose that the trivial solution of the system (12) is integral stable. Then for every , there is a such that for all and we have

Let and where

Therefore

Suppose that the trivial solution of the system (12) is asymptotically integral stable. Then
It follows that
taking into account that

If the trivial solution of (12) is integral unstable, then the trivial solution of (1) is integral unstable.

If the trivial solution of (1) is integral stable or asymptotically integral stable, then the trivial solution of (12) is also integral stable or asymptotically integral stable.

Let the trivial solution of (1) be integral unstable; then the trivial solution of (12) is integral unstable. Otherwise as before it follows that the trivial solution of (1) is integral stable. We get a contraction. The theorem is proven.

Theorem 11. *Let , ,
**
The trivial solution of impulsive equation (1) is stable, asymptotically stable, or unstable if and only if the trivial solution of impulsive equation (12) is stable, asymptotically stable, or unstable.*

*Proof. *Suppose that the trivial solution of the system (12) is stable. Then for every , there is a such that for all and we have .

Let and where
Then for we get
Therefore

Suppose that the trivial solution of the system (12) is asymptotically stable. Then
It follows that

If the trivial solution of (12) is unstable, then the trivial solution of (1) is unstable.

If the trivial solution of (1) is stable or asymptotically stable, then the trivial solution of (12) is also stable or asymptotically stable.

Let the trivial solution of (1) be unstable; then the trivial solution of (12) is unstable. Otherwise as before it follows that the trivial solution of (1) is stable. We get a contraction. The theorem is proven.

*Remark 12. *Let be uniformly continuous on and let improper integral converge. Then [13, page 32].

*Remark 13. *If we replace assumption (54) by the stronger one
