## Abstract

The aim of this paper is devoted to obtain some sufficient conditions for the exponential stability in -moment as well as almost surely exponential stability for mild solution of neutral stochastic partial differential equations with delays by establishing an integral-inequality. Some well-known results are generalized and improved. Finally, an example is given to show the effectiveness of our results.

## 1. Introduction

The investigation for stochastic partial differential equations with delays has attracted the considerable attention of researchers and many qualitative theories for the solutions of this kind have been derived. Many important results have been reported in [1–20]. For example, Caraballo, in [1], extended the results from Haussmann [7] to the delay equations of the same kind; Mao, in [15, 21], proved the exponential stability in mean-square sense about the strong solutions of linear stochastic differential equations with finite constant delay; by using the method in [7, 8], Caraballo and Real, in [4], considered the stability for the strong solutions of semilinear stochastic delay evolution equations; Govindan, in [5, 6], has studied the existence and stability of mild solutions for stochastic partial differential equations by the comparison theorem; Caraballo and Liu, in [2], discussed the exponential stability for mild solution of stochastic partial differential equations with delays by employing the well-known Gronwall inequality and stochastic analysis technique under the Lipschitz condition, but the requirement of the monotone decreasing behaviors of the delays should be imposed; Liu and Truman in [9] and Liu and Mao in [10] analyzed the exponential stability for mild solution of stochastic partial functional differential equations by establishing the corresponding Razuminkhin-type theorem.

In the case of delay differential equations, in the particular case when we are concerned with the mild solution of stochastic partial differential equations, Lyapunov's second method, although it is usually regarded as an important tool to study the stability and boundedness, is not suitable to consider such problem. A crucial problem is that mild solutions do not have stochastic differentials, so that the Itô formula fails to deal with this problem. Very recently, Burton has successfully utilized the fixed point theorem to investigate the stability for deterministic systems in [22]; Luo in [23] and Appleby in [22] have applied this valuable method into dealing with the stability for stochastic differential equations. Following the ideas of Burton in [22], Luo in [23], and Appleby in [24], by employing the contraction mapping principle and stochastic analysis, some sufficient conditions ensuring the trivial solution of exponential stability in -moment and almost sure exponential stability for mild solution of stochastic partial differential equations with delays were obtained in [13], which did not comprise the monotone decreasing behavior of the delays.

However, comparing with stochastic partial differential equations with delays, there are only a few results about neutral stochastic partial differential equations. Precisely, Liu [11] considered a linear neutral stochastic differential equations with constant delays and some stability properties of the mild solutions in a similar way as Datko [25] in the deterministic case. Caraballo et al., in [3], have studied the almost sure exponential stability and ultimate boundedness of the solutions to a class of neutral stochastic semilinear partial delay differential equations; Mahmudov, in [14], has discussed the existence and uniqueness for mild solution of neutral stochastic differential equations by constructing a new iterative scheme under the non-Lipschitz conditions.

It should be pointed out that there exist a number of difficulties encountered in the study of the stability for mild solution to neutral stochastic partial differential equations with delays since the neutral item is present. And many methods used frequently fail to consider the exponential stability of mild solution for neutral stochastic partial differential equations with delays, for example, the comparison theorem in [5, 6], the Gronwall inequality in [2], the analytic technique in [9], and the semigroup method in [16]. The methods proposed in [1, 3, 8, 10, 18, 20] are also ineffective in dealing with this problem since mild solutions do not have stochastic differentials. So, the technique and the method dealt with such problems are in need of being developed and explored. On the other hand, to the best of our knowledge, there is no paper which investigates the exponential stability in -moment and almost surely exponential stability for mild solution of such problems. Thus, we will make the first attempt to study such problem to close this gap in this paper.

The content of this paper is arranged as follows. In Section 2, some necessary definitions, notations, and lemmas used in this paper will be introduced. In Section 3, by establishing a lemma, some sufficient conditions about the exponential stability in -moment and almost sure exponential stability are derived. Finally, one example is provided to illustrate the obtained results.

## 2. Preliminaries

Under the condition: ()–, the existence and uniqueness of mild solution to the neutral stochastic partial differential equations with delays (2.1) is easily shown by using the proposed method in [14] and the proof of this problem is very similar to the proof of [14, Theorem 6]. Here, we omit it. In particular, the system (2.1) obviously has a trivial mild solution when .

## 3. Main Results

In this section, in order to establish some sufficient conditions ensuring the exponential stability in -moment and almost sure exponential stability for mild solution of system (2.1), we are in need of establishing the following integral-inequality to overcome the difficulty when the neutral item is present.

Lemma 3.1.

For , there exist three positive constants: and a function . If , the following inequality

Letting , we have holds. That is, there exists a positive constant , such that .

For any let

Now, in order to show this lemma, we only claim that (3.1) implies

Easily, for any , (3.3) holds. Assume, for the sake of contradiction, that there exists a such that

Then, (3.1) implies

From the definitions of and , we have

Thus, (3.5) yields

As is arbitrarily small, in view of (3.3), it follows

where . The proof of this lemma is completed.

Theorem 3.2.

Supposed that the conditions ()–() are satisfied, then the mild solutionto system (2.1) is exponential stability in -moment, if the following inequality

holds, where .

Proof.

By virtue of the inequality (3.9) and the condition (), we can always find a number small enough such that

Based on an elementary inequality, for any real numbers and , it follows

From (2.3), the condition (), and Lemma 2.6, we have

Then, Lemma 2.7 and (3.12) imply that

By Lemma 3.1, we can derive that . That is, the exponential stability in -moment for mild solution to system (2.1) is obtained. The proof is completed.

Theorem 3.3.

Corollary 3.4.

Suppose that the conditions ()–() hold with , then the mild solution of system (2.1) is exponential stability in mean square and almost surely exponential stability, if the following inequality

Remark 3.5.

When the neutral item is removed, system (2.1) is turned into the following stochastic partial differential equations with delays:

The mild solution of system (3.24) is the exponential stability in -moment and almost surely exponential stability provided that

holds, which was studied by the fixed point theorem in [13]. As the neutral item and the delays , , system (2.1) is considered as the stochastic evolution equations:

The mild solution to system (3.26) is guaranteed to be the exponential stability in -moment and almost surely exponential stability under the inequality (3.25) in [17]. Thus, we can generalize the results in [13, 17] which are regarded as two special cases in this paper.

Remark 3.6.

Caraballo and Liu, in [2], have considered the exponential stability in -moment and almost surely exponential stability for mild solution to system (3.24) by utilizing the Gronwall inequality. However, the monotone decreasing behaviors of the delays are imposed in [2], that is, for for all In particular, when and , the condition for the exponential stability in -moment and almost surely exponential stability for mild solution to system (3.24) in [2] is

In this sense, this paper can generalize and improve the results in [2].

## 4. Example

In this section, we provide an example to illustrate the obtained results above.

We consider the following neutral stochastic partial differential equations with delays:

where is a standard one-dimensional Wiener process and a.s., and . Take , . Define by with domain are absolutely continuous, . Then

where is orthonormal set of eigenvector of . It is well known that is the infinitesimal generator of an analytic semigroup in and is given (see pazy [26, page 70]) by

that satisfies , and hence is a contraction semigroup.

Define

It is easily seen that

from the definition of by

Thus, when , by virtue of Corollary 3.4, the mild solution of system (4.1) is exponential stability in mean square and almost sure exponential stability provided that the following inequality

holds.
