Abstract: We study stochastic differential equations, $ dx = adt + \sigma d\beta $ where $ \beta $ denotes a Brownian motion. By relaxing the definition of solutions we are able to prove existence theorems assuming only that $ a$ is measurable, $ \sigma $ is continuous and that both grow linearly at infinity. Nondegeneracy is not assumed. The relaxed definition of solution is an extension of A. F. Filippov's definition in the deterministic case. When $ \sigma $ is constant we prove one-sided uniqueness and approximation theorems under the assumption that $ a$ satisfies a one-sided Lipschitz condition.
