In this paper, we obtain new Lyapunov-type inequalities for the two-dimensional nonlinear system and discrete nonlinear system, respectively.
We shall assume the existence of nontrivial solution of the system (2.1), and furthermore, (2.1) satisfies the following assumptions (i), (ii), and (iii):
(i) , are real constants;
(ii) , are continuous functions such that for ;
(iii) is a continuous function.
