We may use it to de ne the stability of BVP. De nition 7.1.1. The BVP (7.1.1) is stable if there exists a constant such that ky( )k jlj + jrj + 1 1 Zb jb( )j d ] (7.1.5a) jbj = 1max jbij: im 1 (7.1.5b) a 1 where ky( )k = amaxb jy(x)j x 1 1 1 From (7.1.4a), we see that = max(kY( )Q 1k kG( )k ) ; 1 1 (7.1.5c) assuming that all quantities are bounded. Thus, the solution of a stable BVP is bounded by its data. Following the techniques used for IVPs, we may show that this also applies to a perturbation of the data associated with the BVP (7.1.1) ( 2], Chapter 6) hence, the reason for the name stability. De nition 7.1.2. The BVP (7.1.1) has exponential dichotomy if there are positive constants K...
