New result in the ultimate boundedness of solutions of a third-order nonlinear ordinary differential equation.

The author considers the nonlinear third order ordinary differential equation $${x} + f(x,\dot {x},\ddot {x})\ddot {x} + g(x,\dot {x}) + h(x,\dot {x},\ddot {x}) = p(t,x,\dot {x},\ddot {x}) \tag1$$ or its equivalent system $$\dot {x} = y, \quad \dot {y} = z,$$ $$\dot {z} = - f(x,y,z)z - g(x,y) - h(x,y,z) + p(t,x,y,z),$$ where it is assumed that $f$, $g$, $h$ and $p$ are continuous functions which depend only on the arguments displayed explicitly, the dots denote differentiation with respect to $t$ and the derivatives $\frac{\partial f(x,y,z)}{\partial x} \equiv f_x (x,y,z), \quad \frac{\partial f(x,y,z)}{\partial z} \equiv \quad f_z (x,y,z), \quad \frac{\partial h(x,y,z)}{\partial x} \equiv h_x (x,y,z), \quad \frac{\partial h(x,y,z)}{\partial y} \equiv h_y (x,y,z),\frac{\partial h(x,y,z)}{\partial z} \equiv h_z (x,y,z)$ and $\frac{\partial g(x,y)}{\partial x} \equiv g_x (x,y)$ exist and are continuous. Some sufficient conditions have been established for the ultimate boundedness of all solutions of (1). By this way, the author's result improves the result obtained by the reviewer [{\it C. Tunç}, JIPAM, J. Inequal. Pure Appl. Math. 6, No. 1, Paper No. 3, 6 p., electronic only (2005; Zbl 1082.34514)].
