#### Abstract

An efficient computational method is given in order to solve the systems of nonlinear infinite-delay-differential equations (IDDEs) with proportional delays. Representation of the solution and an iterative method are established in the reproducing kernel space. Some examples are displayed to demonstrate the computation efficiency of the method.

#### 1. Introduction

In functional-differential equations (FDEs), there is a class of infinite-delay-differential equations (IDDEs) with proportional delays such systems are often encountered in many scientific fields such as electric mechanics, quantum mechanics, and optics. In view of this, developing the research for this class of IDDEs possesses great significance on theory and practice, for this attracts constant interest of researchers. Ones have found that there exist very different mathematical challenges between FDEs with proportional delays and those with constant delays. Some researches on the numerical solutions and the corresponding analysis for the linear FDEs with proportional delays have been presented by several authors. In the last few years, there has been a growing interest in studying the existence of solutions of functional differential equations with state dependent delay [1–7]. Initial-value problem for neutral functional-differential equations with proportional time delays had been studied in [8–11]; in the literature [11] authors had discussed the existence and uniqueness of analytic solution of linear proportional delays equations.

Ishiwata et al. used the rational approximation method and the collocation method to compute numerical solutions of delay-differential equations with proportional delays in [12, 13]. At [14–17], Hu et al. gave the numerical method to compute numerical solutions of neutral delay differential equations. For neutral delay differential equations with proportional delays, Chen and Wang proposed the variational iteration method [18] and the homotopy perturbation method [19]. Recently, time-delay systems become interested in applications like population growth models, transportation, communications, and agricultural models so those systems were widely studied both in a theoretical aspect and in that of related applications [20–22].

We consider the following nonlinear infinite delay-differential equation (IDDE) with proportional delay [23]: where , is a given initial value, , and for , , is a continuous function; as , .

Next, the following system of nonlinear infinite-delay-differential equations (IDDEs) with proportional delays will be studied: where , for , , , are continuous bounded function, and , as , . and are reproducing kernel spaces. Equations (2) are obtained through homogenization of initial condition for model in [24]. In this study, existence and a new iterative algorithm are established for the nonlinear infinite-delay-differential equations (IDDEs) with proportional delays in the reproducing kernel spaces.

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, some definitions of the reproducing kernel spaces are introduced. In Section 3, main results and the structure of the solution for operator equation are discussed. Existence of the solution to (2) and an iterative method are developed for the kind of problems in the reproducing kernel space. We verify that the approximate solution converges to the exact solution uniformly. In Section 4, some experiments are given to demonstrate the computation efficiency of the algorithm. The conclusion is given in Section 5.

#### 2. Preliminaries

*Definition 1 (see [25] (reproducing kernel)). * Let be a nonempty abstract set. A function is a reproducing kernel of the Hilbert space if and only if(a), ,(b), , .

The condition (b) is called “the reproducing property”; a Hilbert space which possesses a reproducing kernel is called a Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Space (RKHS).

Next, two reproducing kernel spaces are given.

#### 3. Statements of the Main Results

In this section, the implementation method of obtaining the solution of (2) is proposed in the reproducing kernel space .

Put the differential operator ; then we can convert (2) into the following form: where , and It is clear that is a bounded linear operator. Let , where is dense in the interval , and , where is the conjugate operator of . Define the normal orthogonal system in , which derives from Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization process of ,

This implies that
Without loss of generality, assume ; we have
Considering the completeness of , there exist and in such that

Secondly, we will prove that and are the solutions of (2).

By Lemma 14 and the proof of (1), we may know that , and respectively, converge uniformly to and . Taking limits in (35), we have
Since

If , then

From (70) and (71), it is clear that
Furthermore, it is easy to see by induction that

Hence, let in (74), and (75); by Lemma 14 and the continuity of and , we have
That is, and are the solutions of (2) and
where and .

In the proof of the convergence in Theorem 15 we only use , ; thus we obtain the following corollary.

Corollary 16. *Suppose and are bounded; then the iterative sequence (35) is convergent to the exact solution of (2).*

Theorem 17. *Assume and are the solutions of (2), and are the approximate errors of , where and are given by (35). Then the errors , are monotone decreasing in the sense of .*

#### 5. Conclusion

In this paper, RKHSM has been successfully applied to find the solutions of systems of nonlinear IDDEs with proportional delays. The efficiency and accuracy of the proposed decomposition method were demonstrated by two test problems. It is concluded from above tables and figures that the RKHSM is an accurate and efficient method to solve IDDEs with proportional delays. Moreover, the method is also effective for solving some nonlinear initial-boundary value problems and nonlocal boundary value problems.
