Abstract: Consider the delay differential equation $$ \dot x(t)=g(x(t),x(t-r)),\tag 1 $$ where $r>0$ is a constant and $g \br ^2\rightarrow \br $ is Lipschitzian. It is shown that if $r$ is small, then the solutions of (1) have the same convergence properties as the solutions of the ordinary differential equation obtained from (1) by ignoring the delay.
