# an exercice for uniquesess solution of differential equation

i have this exercice Let the problem $$y'=f(y) g(x) , y(x_0)=y_0$$ if $f(y_0)=0$ what are the conditions on $f$ for the probleme admits a unique solution thank's

Use the Picard-Lindeloef's Theorem to give a sufficient condition... – Alex Apr 19 '13 at 22:24
$f(y)$ has to be Lipschetz continuous by Picard-Lindeloef's theorem. – Mhenni Benghorbal Apr 19 '13 at 22:45
We use Picard theorem to $f(y) g(x)$ not just to $f(y).$ or not? – lili Apr 19 '13 at 22:48
@lili: Read the theorem carefully, if $y'=G(x,y)$, then we require $G$ to be Lipschitz continuous in $y$ and continuous in $x$. – Mhenni Benghorbal Apr 19 '13 at 23:12
ok! $f(y)$ must be lipschitz . But why lipschitz continuous? if $f$ is lipschiz, so she is continuous! – lili Apr 20 '13 at 9:30

Let

$$f(y)g(x)=h(x,y)$$

If both $h(x,y)$ and $\displaystyle\frac{\partial h}{\partial y}(x,y)$ are continuous over some rectangle $R$ then for $(x_{0},y_{0})\in R$ the solution exists and it is unique
