Conditions are derived of the existence of solutions of nonlinear boundary-value problems for systems of 𝑛 ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients and single delay (in the linear part) and with a finite number of measurable delays of argument in nonlinearity: ̇ 𝑧 ( 𝑡 ) = 𝐴 𝑧 ( 𝑡 𝜏 ) + 𝑔 ( 𝑡 ) + 𝜀 𝑍 ( 𝑧 ( 𝑖 ( 𝑡 ) , 𝑡 , 𝜀 ) , 𝑡 [ 𝑎 , 𝑏 ] , assuming that these solutions satisfy the initial and boundary conditions 𝑧 ( 𝑠 ) = 𝜓 ( 𝑠 ) i f 𝑠 [ 𝑎 , 𝑏 ] , 𝑧 ( ) = 𝛼 𝑚 . The use of a delayed matrix exponential and a method of pseudoinverse by Moore-Penrose matrices led to an explicit and analytical form of sufficient conditions for the existence of solutions in a given space and, moreover, to the construction of an iterative process for finding the solutions of such problems in a general case when the number of boundary conditions (defined by a linear vector functional ) does not coincide with the number of unknowns in the differential system with a single delay.
