On Approximate Controllability of Second-Order Neutral Partial Stochastic Functional Integrodifferential Inclusions with Infinite Delay and Impulsive Effects
We discuss the approximate controllability of second-order impulsive neutral partial stochastic functional integrodifferential inclusions with infinite delay under the assumptions that the corresponding linear system is approximately controllable. Using the fixed point strategy, stochastic analysis, and properties of the cosine family of bounded linear operators combined with approximation techniques, a new set of sufficient conditions for approximate controllability of the second-order impulsive partial stochastic integrodifferential systems are formulated and proved. The results in this paper are generalization and continuation of the recent results on this issue. An example is provided to show the application of our result.
Impulsive effects exist widely in many evolution processes in which states are changed abruptly at certain moments of time, involving fields such as physics, chemical technology, population dynamics, biotechnology, and economics; see [1–4] and the references therein. However, in addition to impulsive effects, stochastic effects likewise exist in real systems. A lot of dynamical systems have variable structures subject to stochastic abrupt changes, which may result from abrupt phenomena such as stochastic failures and repairs of the components, changes in the interconnections of subsystems, sudden environment changes, and other areas of science. Therefore, it is necessary and important to consider the impulsive stochastic dynamical systems. Particularly, the authors in [5–7] studied the existence of mild solutions for a class of abstract impulsive neutral stochastic functional differential and integrodifferential equations with infinite delay in Hilbert spaces.
The concept of controllability leads to some very important conclusions regarding the behavior of linear and nonlinear dynamical systems. In the case of infinite-dimensional systems, two basic concepts of controllability can be distinguished. There are exact and approximate controllability. However, the concept of exact controllability is usually too strong . Therefore, approximate controllability problems for deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems in infinite dimensional spaces are well developed using different kind of approaches (see [9, 10]). Stochastic control theory is a stochastic generalization of classic control theory. So significant progress has been made in the approximate controllability of linear and nonlinear stochastic systems in Banach spaces (see, e.g., [9–12]). Several papers [13–16] have appeared on the approximate controllability of nonlinear impulsive stochastic differential systems in Hilbert spaces.
In many cases, it is advantageous to treat the second-order stochastic differential equations directly rather than to convert them to first-order systems. The second-order stochastic differential equations are the right model in continuous time to account for integrated processes that can be made stationary. Recently, based on the fixed point theory, the existence and approximate controllability of mild solutions for various second-order stochastic partial differential equations and impulsive stochastic partial differential equations have been extensively studied. For example, Ren and Sun , Cui and Yan , and Mahmudov and McKibben  proved the approximate controllability of second-order neutral stochastic evolution differential equations. Muthukumar and Balasubramaniam  established sufficient conditions for the approximate controllability of a class of second-order nonlinear stochastic functional differential equations of McKean-Vlasov type. Balasubramaniam and Muthukumar in  discussed the approximate controllability of second-order neutral stochastic distributed implicit functional differential equations with infinite delay. Sakthivel et al. in  studied the approximate controllability of second-order impulsive stochastic differential equations. On the other hand, many systems arising from realistic models can be described as partial stochastic differential or integrodifferential inclusions (see [23–27] and references therein), so it is natural to extend the concept controllability of mild solution for second-order impulsive stochastic evolution equations to second-order impulsive systems represented by stochastic partial differential or integrodifferential inclusions. In this paper, we consider the approximate controllability of the following second-order impulsive neutral partial stochastic functional integrodifferential inclusions with infinite delay in Hilbert spaces of the formwhere the state takes values in a separable real Hilbert space with inner product and norm The operator is the infinitesimal generator of a strongly continuous cosine family on . The control function , a Hilbert space of admissible control functions, is an integer, and is a bounded linear operator from a Banach space to Let be another separable Hilbert space with inner product and norm Suppose that is a given -valued Wiener process with a covariance operator defined on a complete probability space equipped with a normal filtration , which is generated by the Wiener process . The time history given by belongs to some abstract phase space defined axiomatically; , , , , are given functions to be specified later. Moreover, let be prefixed points and the symbol , where and represent the right and left limits of at , respectively. The initial data is an -adapted, -valued random variable independent of the Wiener process with finite second moment.
To the best of the author’s knowledge, there are no results about the existence and approximate controllability of mild solutions for second-order impulsive second-order neutral partial stochastic functional integrodifferential inclusions with infinite delay, which is expressed in the form of (1). In order to fill this gap, this paper studies this interesting problem. We derive the sufficient conditions for the approximate controllability of system (1) by using the fixed point theorem for multivalued mapping due to Dhage  with stochastic analysis and properties of the cosine family of bounded linear operators combined with approximation techniques. The obtained result can be seen as a contribution to this emerging field. Moreover, the operators , are continuous but without imposing completely continuous and Lipschitz condition. The results shown are also new for deterministic second-order systems with impulsive effects.
The rest of this paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we introduce some notations and necessary preliminaries. Section 3 verifies the existence of solutions for impulsive stochastic control system (1). In Section 4 we establish the approximate controllability of impulsive stochastic control system (1). Finally in Section 5, an example is given to illustrate our results.
