Attractors of partial differential evolution equations in an unbounded domain

  • A. V. Babin (a1) and M. I. Vishik (a2)


There is a large number of papers in which attractors of parabolic reaction-diffusion equations in bounded domains are investigated. In this paper, these equations are considered in the whole unbounded space, and a theory of attractors of such equations is built. While investigating these equations, specific difficulties arise connected with the noncompactness of operators, with the continuity of their spectra, etc. Therefore some new conditions on nonlinear terms arise. In this paper weighted spaces are widely applied. An important feature of this problem is worth mentioning: namely, properties of semigroups corresponding to equations with solutions in spaces of growing and of decreasing functions essentially differ.
