### Abstract

As a generalization of a vector field on a manifold, the notion of an arc field on a locally complete metric space was introduced in Bleecker and Calcaterra (J Math Anal Appl, 248: 645-677, 2000). In that paper, the authors proved an analogue of the Cauchy-Lipschitz Theorem, i. e they showed the existence and uniqueness of solution curves for a time independent arc field. In this paper, we extend the result to the time dependent case, namely we show the existence and uniqueness of solution curves for a time dependent arc field. We also introduce the notion of the sum of two time dependent arc fields and show existence and uniqueness of solution curves for this sum.
