In 1890 he published a new correct proof using successive approximations. Theorem Let {displaystyle D} be an open subset of {displaystyle mathbb {R} times mathbb {R} } with {displaystyle fcolon Dto mathbb {R} } a continuous function and {displaystyle y'(x)=fleft(x,y(x)right)} a continuous, explicit first-order differential equation defined on D, then every initial value problem {displaystyle yleft(x_{0}right)=y_{0}} for f with {displaystyle (x_{0},y_{0})in D} has a local solution {displaystyle zcolon Ito mathbb {R} } where {displaystyle I} is a neighbourhood of {displaystyle x_{0}} in {displaystyle mathbb {R} } , such that {displaystyle z'(x)=fleft(x,z(x)right)} for all {displaystyle xin I} . The solution need not be unique: one and the same initial value {displaystyle (x_{0},y_{0})} may give rise to many different solutions {displaystyle z} .

Proof By replacing {displaystyle y} with {displaystyle y-y_{0}} , {displaystyle x} with {displaystyle x-x_{0}} , we may assume {displaystyle x_{0}=y_{0}=0} . As {displaystyle D} is open there is a rectangle {displaystyle R=[-x_{1},x_{1}]times [-y_{1},y_{1}]subset D} .

Because {displaystyle R} is compact and {displaystyle f} is continuous, we have {displaystyle textstyle sup _{R}|f|leq C
