A solution is defined by the difference x - F being absolutely continuous and satisfying the inclusion d/ dt (x(t) - F(t)) ∈ ∫tα dsR(t, s) x(s). Here, the integral in the right is the multivalued Stieltjes integral presented in [11] (in this article we review and extend the results in [11]). We show that the solution set for the initial-value problem is nonempty, compact, and convex. A solution x is said to have memory if there exists the function x̄ such that x̄(α) = x(α), x̄(b) = x(b), x̄(t) ∈ [x(t - 0), x(t + 0)] for t ∈ (α, b), and d/dt (x(t) - F(t)) = ∫tα dsR(t, s) x̄(s), where Lebesgue-Stieltjes integral is used. We show that such solutions form a nonempty, compact, and convex set. It is shown that solutions with memory obey the Cauchy-type formula x(t) ∈ C(t, α)x(α) + ∫tα C(t, s) dF(s). dc.description.department Mathematics dc.format Text dc.format.extent 23 pages dc.format.medium 1 file (.pdf) dc.identifier.citation Tsalyuk, V.
