Abstract: This paper deals with stability aspects of delay differential equations with general distributed delays. The objective is to show that, frequently, general distributed delays are not harder to handle than discrete delays. This is accomplished by treating two-dimensional systems of differential delay equations with distributed delays via several different approaches. All of these approaches are general, effective, and easy to apply.
