# Existence of Positive Periodic Solutions for a Class of Higher-Dimension Functional Differential Equations with Impulses

**Academic Editor:**Youyu Wang

#### Abstract

By employing the Krasnoselskii fixed point theorem, we establish some criteria for the existence of positive periodic solutions of a class of -dimension periodic functional differential equations with impulses, which improve the results of the literature.

#### 1. Introduction

Some evolution processes are distinguished by the circumstance that the evolutions change very rapidly at certain instants. In mathematical simulations, impulsive delay differential equations may express several simulation processes in real world which depend on their prehistory and are subject to short time disturbances. Such processes occur in the theory of optional control, population dynamics, biotechnologies, economics, and so forth. In recent years, the existence theory of positive periodic solutions of delay differential equations with impulsive effects or without impulsive effects has been an object of active research; we refer the reader to [1–4]. For other related works on studying for impulsive delay differential equations, we refer the reader to [5–7].

In [8], Zeng et al. studied the following functional differential equations without impulses: and obtained sufficient conditions for the existence of positive periodic solutions of (1).

Zhang et al. [9] investigated the following form:

In this paper, we will consider the -dimension differential equation with impulses as follows: where is a parameter, , is -periodic, and is an operator defined on (here denotes the Banach space of bounded continuous operator with the norm where . For and , is defined by for (see [10], Zheng). Consider that and (here represents the right limit of at the point ), , that is, changes decreasingly suddenly at , is a constant, and are the sets of all nonnegative and nonpositive real numbers, respectively. We assume that there exists an integer such that , where .

#### 2. Some Preliminaries

, is continuous everywhere except at a finite number of points at which and exist and , . For each , the norm of is defined as .

Throughout the paper, we make the following assumptions: for all ; is a continuous function of for each , ; for any and , there exists such that for , , , and imply that

To conclude this section, we summarize in the following a few concepts and results that will be needed in our arguments.

*Definition 1. *Let be a Banach space, and let be a closed, nonempty subset of ; is a cone if(i) for all and all ;(ii) imply .

Let with the norm , where ; then is a Banach space.

If is a solution of (3), then

Then, it can be immediately obtained from the assumptions and that the operator is completely continuous. On the other hand, it is not difficult to check that is a positive -periodic solution of (3) if and only if is a fixed point of the operator .

Before stating the main results, we shall give some important lemmas.

Lemma 2. *The mapping maps into , that is, .*

#### 3. Main Results

For the sake of convenience, we introduce the following notations: where denotes either 0 or .

Theorem 6. *Assume that – hold and

It follows from Lemma 3 that (3) has a positive -periodic solution satisfying .

Theorem 7. *Assume that – hold and

This implies that , for any .

Therefore, (3) has at least one positive -periodic solution.

Theorem 8. *Suppose that* * there exists , such that , for ,* * there exists , such that, , for **hold; then (3) has at least one positive -periodic solution.*

Again, By , for , there exists a sufficiently small such that
that is
In the following, we consider two cases to prove to be satisfied:(i);(ii), .The bounded case is clear. If case (ii) is valid, then there exists , such that
Since , then we have
