Abstract

In this paper we study the asymptotic stability of the trivial solution of third order nonlinear delay differential equations of the form

x'''(t) + f(x(t), x'(t))x''(t) + g(x(t − r), x'(t − r)) + h(x(t − r)) = 0,

where r > 0 is a constant delay. In proving our result we make use of Lyapunov’s second method by constructing a Lyapunov functional.
