Abstract : Part 1 of this paper presented a theory of distribution solutions of semilinear differential-algebraic equations (DAE's). In particular, it was shown that uniqueness of solutions of initial value problems breaks down completely in the class of discontinuous solutions. Here a mathematical procedure is introduced for selecting physically acceptable solutions which satisfy some new consistency condition relative to admissible perturbations of the original DAE. Several nonlinear circuit examples are given to support the theory. (AN)
