Abstract

This paper proposes conditions for the existence and uniqueness of solutions to systems of linear differential or algebraic equations with delays or advances, in which some variables may be non-predetermined. These conditions represent the counterpart to the Blanchard and Kahn conditions for the functional equations under consideration. To illustrate the mathematical results, applications to an overlapping generations model and a time-to-build model are developed.
