# Integral separation condition

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

A condition on a system of linear differential equations

(where is a mapping with ), requiring that the system has solutions , , satisfying for certain the inequalities

for all and all .

The set of systems satisfying the integral separation condition is the interior of the set of continuity of all Lyapunov characteristic exponents (cf. Lyapunov characteristic exponent) in the space of systems

with metric
