Abstract: Based on the theory of differential equations on manifolds, existence and uniqueness results are proved for a class of mixed systems of differential and algebraic equations as they occur in various applications. Both the autonomous and nonautonomous case are considered. Moreover, a class of algebraically incomplete systems is introduced for which existence and uniqueness results only hold on certain lower-dimensional manifolds. This class includes systems for which the application of ODE-solvers is known to lead to difficulties. Finally, some solution approach based on continuation techniques is outlined.
