Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The object of study is an autonomous impulsive system proposed as a model of drugs absorption by living organisms consisting of a linear differential delay equation and an impulsive self-support condition. We get a representation of the general solution in terms of the fundamental solution of the differential delay equation. The impulsive self-support generates periodic auto-oscillations given by fixed points of a first return map.
