This paper deals with the existence and uniqueness of mild solutions for the initial value problems of abstract impulsive evolution equations in an ordered Banach space E:u(t)+Au(t)=f(t,u(t),Gu(t)), t[0,a], ttk, Δu|t=tk=Ik(u(tk)), 0<t1<t2<<tm<a, u(0)=u0, where A:D(A)EE is a closed linear operator, and f:[0,a]×E×EE is a nonlinear mapping. Under wide monotone conditions and measure of noncompactness conditions of nonlinearity f, some existence and uniqueness results are obtained by using a monotone iterative technique in the presence of lower and upper solutions.
