Distinction between "measure differential equations" and "differential equations in distributions"?

Distinction between "measure differential equations" and "differential equations in distributions"?
Is there a universally recognized term for ODEs considered in the sense of distributions used to describe impulsive/discontinuous processes? I noticed that some authors call such ODEs "measure differential equations" while others use the term "differential equations in distributions". But I don't see a major difference between them. Can anyone please make the point clear?

Step 1
As long as the distributions involved in the equation are (signed) measures, there is no difference and both terms can be used interchangeably. This is the case for impulsive source equations like y + y = δ t 0 .
Step 2
Conceivably, ODE could also involve distributions that are not measures, such as the derivative of δ t 0 . In that case only "differentiable equation in distributions" would be correct. But I can't think of a natural example of such an ODE at this time.

Differential form of a differential equation
By multiplying the differential equation
6xydydx+x2+y2=0
by dx we see that the equation has the alternative differential form
(x2+y2)dx+6xydy=0.

Consider the problem
Y=d1t+1+ctan1(Y(t))d12,Y(0)=0
with c a given constant. Since Y(0)=d12, the solution Y (t) is initially increasing as t increases, regardless of the value of c. As best you can, show that there is a value of c, call it c∗, for which (1) if c>c, the solution Y(t) increases indefinitely, and (2) if c<c, then Y(t) increases initially, but then peaks and decreases. Using ode45, determine c∗ to within 0.00005, and then calculate the associated solution Y(t) for 0t50.
