#### Abstract

We present a new perspective concerning the study of the asymptotic behavior of variational equations by employing function spaces techniques. We give a complete description of the dichotomous behaviors of the most general case of skew-product flows, without any assumption concerning the flow, the cocycle or the splitting of the state space, our study being based only on the solvability of some associated control systems between certain function spaces. The main results do not only point out new necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of uniform and exponential dichotomy of skew-product flows, but also provide a clear chart of the connections between the classes of translation invariant function spaces that play the role of the input or output classes with respect to certain control systems. Finally, we emphasize the significance of each underlying hypothesis by illustrative examples and present several interesting applications.

#### 1. Introduction

Starting from a collection of open questions related to the modeling of the equations of mathematical physics in the unified setting of dynamical systems, the study of their qualitative properties became a domain of large interest and with a wide applicability area. In this context, the interaction between the modern methods of pure mathematics and questions arising naturally from mathematical physics created a very active field of research (see [1–18] and the references therein). In recent years, some interesting unsolved problems concerning the long-time behavior of dynamical systems were identified, whose potential results would be of major importance in the process of understanding, clarifying, and solving some of the essential problems belonging to a wide range of scientific domains, among, we mention: fluid mechanics, aeronautics, magnetism, ecology, population dynamics, and so forth. Generally, the asymptotic behavior of the solutions of nonlinear evolution equations arising in mathematical physics can be described in terms of attractors, which are often studied by constructing the skew-product flows of the dynamical processes.

It was natural then to independently consider and analyze the asymptotic behavior of variational systems modeled by skew-product flows (see [3–5, 14–19]). In this framework, two of the most important asymptotic properties are described by uniform dichotomy and exponential dichotomy. Both properties focus on the decomposition of the state space into a direct sum of two closed invariant subspaces such that the solution on these subspaces (uniformly or exponentially) decays backward and forward in time, and the splitting holds at every point of the flow's domain. Precisely, these phenomena naturally lead to the study of the existence of stable and unstable invariant manifolds. It is worth mentioning that starting with the remarkable works of Coppel [20], Daleckii and Krein [21], and Massera and Schäffer [22] the study of the dichotomy had a notable impact on the development of the qualitative theory of dynamical systems (see [1–9, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23]).

A very important step in the infinite-dimensional asymptotic theory of dynamical systems was made by Van Minh et al. in [7] where the authors proposed a unified treatment of the stability, instability, and dichotomy of evolution families on the half-line via input-output techniques. Their paper carried out a beautiful connection between the classical techniques originating in the pioneering works of Perron [11] and Maĭzel [24] and the natural requests imposed by the development of the infinite-dimensional systems theory. They extended the applicability area of the so-called admissibility techniques developed by Massera and Schäffer in [22], from differential equations in infinite-dimensional spaces to general evolutionary processes described by propagators. The authors pointed out that instead of characterizing the behavior of a homogeneous equation in terms of the solvability of the associated inhomogeneous equation (see [20–22]) one may detect the asymptotic properties by analyzing the existence of the solutions of the associated integral system given by the variation of constants formula. These new methods technically moved the central investigation of the qualitative properties into a different sphere, where the study strongly relied on control-type arguments. It is important to mention that the control-type techniques have been also successfully used by Palmer (see [9]) and by Rodrigues and Ruas-Filho (see [13]) in order to formulate characterizations for exponential dichotomy in terms of the Fredholm Alternative. Starting with these papers, the interaction between control theory and the asymptotic theory of dynamical systems became more profound, and the obtained results covered a large variety of open problems (see, e.g., [1, 2, 12, 14–17, 23] and the references therein).

Despite the density of papers devoted to the study of the dichotomy in the past few years and in contrast with the apparent impression that the phenomenon is well understood, a large number of unsolved problems still raise in this topic, most of them concerning the variational case. In the present paper, we will provide a complete answer to such an open question. We start from a natural problem of finding suitable conditions for the existence of uniform dichotomy as well as of exponential dichotomy using control-type methods, emphasizing on the identification of the essential structures involved in such a construction, as the input-output system, the eligible spaces, the interplay between their main properties, the specific lines that make the differences between a necessary and a sufficient condition, and the proper motivation of each underlying condition.

In this paper, we propose an inedit link between the theory of function spaces and the dichotomous behavior of the solutions of infinite dimensional variational systems, which offers a deeper understanding of the subtle mechanisms that govern the control-type approaches in the study of the existence of the invariant stable and unstable manifolds. We consider the general setting of variational equations described by skew-product flows, and we associate a control system on the real line. Beside obtaining new conditions for the existence of uniform or exponential dichotomy of skew-product flows, the main aim is to clarify the chart of the connections between the classes of translation invariant function spaces that play the role of the input class or of the output class with respect to the associated control system, proposing a merger between the functional methods proceeding from interpolation theory and the qualitative techniques from the asymptotic theory of dynamical systems in infinite dimensional spaces.

We consider the most general case of skew-product flows, without any assumption concerning the flow or the cocycle, without any invertibility property, and we work without assuming any initial splitting of the state space and without imposing any invariance property. Our central aim is to establish the existence of the dichotomous behaviors with all their properties (see Definitions 3.5 and 4.1) based only on the minimal solvability of an associated control system described at every point of the base space by an integral equation on the real line. First, we deduce conditions for the existence of uniform dichotomy of skew-product flows and we discuss the technical consequences implied by the solvability of the associated control system between two appropriate translation invariant spaces. We point out, for the first time, that an adequate solvability on the real line of the associated integral control system (see Definition 3.6) implies both the existence of the uniform dichotomy projections as well as their uniform boundedness. Next, the attention focuses on the exponential behavior on the stable and unstable manifold, preserving the solvability concept from the previous section and modifying the properties of the input and the output spaces. Thus, we deduce a clear overview on the representative classes of function spaces which should be considered in the detection of the exponential dichotomy of skew-product flows in terms of the solvability of associated control systems on the real line. The obtained results provide not only new necessary and sufficient conditions for exponential dichotomy, but also a complete diagram of the specific delimitations between the classes of function spaces which may be considered in the study of the exponential dichotomy compared with those from the uniform dichotomy case. Moreover, we point out which are the specific properties of the underlying spaces which make a difference between the sufficient hypotheses and the necessary conditions for the existence of exponential dichotomy of skew-product flows. Finally, we motivate our techniques by illustrative examples and present several interesting applications of the main theorems which generalize the input-output type results of previous research in this topic, among, we mention the well-known theorems due to Perron [11], Daleckii and Krein [21], Massera and Schäffer [22], Van Minh et al. [7], and so forth.

#### 2. Banach Function Spaces: Basic Notations and Preliminaries

In this section, for the sake of clarity, we recall several definitions and properties of Banach function spaces, and, also, we establish the notations that will be used throughout the paper.

Let denote the set of real numbers, let , and let . For every , denotes the characteristic function of the set . Let be the linear space of all Lebesgue measurable functions identifying the functions which are equal almost everywhere.

*Definition 2.1. * A linear subspace is called *normed function space* if there is a mapping such that the following properties hold:(i) if and only if a.e.;(ii), for all ;(iii), for all ;(iv)if a.e. and , then and . If is complete, then is called a *Banach function space*.

*Remark 2.2. * If is a Banach function space and , then also .

*Definition 2.3. * A Banach function space is said to be * invariant under translations* if for every the function belongs to and .

Let be the linear space of all continuous functions with compact support. We denote by the class of all Banach function spaces which are invariant under translations, and(i)for every there is such that , for all ;(ii)if , then there is a continuous function .

*Remark 2.4. * Let . Then, the following properties hold:

(i) if is a bounded interval, then .

(ii) if in , then there is a subsequence which converges to a.e. (see, e.g., [25]).

Let and let . Taking into account that is a convex function and using Jensen's inequality (see, e.g., [26]), we deduce that
This implies that
In addition, using (2.9), we have that
Taking , from relations (2.9) and (2.10), it follows that

Since the function does not depend on , we obtain that .

*Example 2.10. * If defined by , for and , for , then according to Lemma 2.9 we have that the Orlicz space . Moreover, it is easy to see that is a proper subspace of .

In what follows, we will introduce three remarkable subclasses of , which will have an essential role in the study of the existence of dichotomy from the next sections. To do this, we first need the following.

*Definition 2.13. * Let . The mapping is called * the fundamental function* of the space .

Another distinctive subclass of is introduced in the following.

*Remark 2.16. * According to Remark 2.2, we have that if , then there is a continuous function such that .

We will also see, in this paper, that the necessary conditions for the existence of exponential dichotomy should be expressed using another remarkable subclass of —the rearrangement invariant spaces, see the definitions below.

*Definition 2.17. * Let . We say that and are *equimeasurable* if for every the sets and have the same measure.

*Definition 2.18. * A Banach function space is *rearrangement invariant* if for every equimeasurable functions with , we have that and .

Since , then, from Remark 2.19, we have that is an interpolation space between , and . This implies that the restrictions and are correctly defined and bounded linear operators. Setting , the proof is complete.

#### 3. Uniform Dichotomy for Skew-Product Flows

In this section, we start our investigation by studying the existence of a more flexible asymptotic behavior, called uniform dichotomy. This is described by the upper and lower uniform boundedness of the solution in a uniform way on certain complemented subspaces. We will employ a control-type technique and we will show that the use of the function spaces, from the class introduced in the previous section, provides several interesting conclusions concerning the qualitative behavior of the solutions of variational equations.

Let be a real or complex Banach space and let denote the identity operator on . The norm on and on —the Banach algebra of all bounded linear operators on , will be denoted by . Let be a metric space.

*Definition 3.1. * A continuous mapping is called a * flow* on if and , for all .

*Definition 3.2. * A pair is called a *skew-product flow* on if is a flow on and the mapping called *cocycle*, satisfies the following conditions:(i) and , for all ;(ii)there are and such that , for all ;(iii)for every , the mapping is continuous on .

*Example 3.3 (Particular cases). * The class described by skew-product flows generalizes the autonomous systems as well as the nonautonomous systems, as the following examples show:(i)If , then let and let be an evolution family on the Banach space . Setting , we observe that is a skew-product flow.(ii)Let be a -semigroup on the Banach space and let be a metric space.If is an arbitrary flow on and , then is a skew-product flow.Let be the projection flow on and let be a uniformly bounded family of projections such that , for all . If , then is a skew-product flow.

Starting with the remarkable work of Foias et al. (see [19]), the qualitative theory of dynamical systems acquired a new perspective concerning the connections between bifurcation theory and the mathematical modeling of nonlinear equations. In [19], the authors proved that classical equations like Navier-Stokes, Taylor-Couette, and Bubnov-Galerkin can be modeled and studied in the unified setting of skew-product flows. In this context, it was pointed out that the skew-product flows often proceed from the linearization of nonlinear equations. Thus, classical examples of skew-product flows arise as operator solutions for variational equations.

*Example 3.4 (The variational equation). * Let be a locally compact metric space and let be a flow on . Let be a Banach space and let be a family of densely defined closed operators. We consider the variational equation
A cocycle is said to be *a solution of * if for every , there is a dense subset such that for every initial condition the mapping is differentiable on , for every and the mapping satisfies .

An important asymptotic behavior of skew-product flows is described by the uniform dichotomy, which relies on the splitting of the Banach space at every point into a direct sum of two invariant subspaces such that on the first subspace the trajectory solution is uniformly stable, on the second subspace the restriction of the cocycle is reversible and also the trajectory solution is uniformly unstable on the second subspace. This is given by the following.

*Definition 3.5. * A skew-product flow is said to be *uniformly dichotomic* if there exist a family of projections and a constant such that the following properties hold:(i), for all ;(ii), for all , all and all ;(iii)the restriction is an isomorphism, for all ;(iv), for all , all and all ;(v).

In what follows, our main attention will focus on finding suitable conditions for the existence of uniform dichotomy for skew-product flows. To do this, we will introduce an integral control system associated with a skew-product flow such that the input and the output spaces of the system belong to the general class . We will emphasize that the class has an essential role in the study of the dichotomous behavior of variational equations.

Let be two Banach function spaces with . Let be a skew-product flow on . We associate with the input-output control system , where for every such that the input function and the output function .

*Definition 3.6. * The pair is said to be *uniformly admissible* for the system if there is such that for every , the following properties hold:(i)for every there exists such that the pair satisfies ;(ii)if and are such that the pair satisfies , then .

*Remark 3.7. *(i) According to this admissibility concept, it is sufficient to choose all the input functions from the space , and, thus, we point out that is in fact * the smaller possible input space* that can be used in the input-output study of the dichotomy.

(ii) It is also interesting to see that the norm estimation from (ii) reflects the presence (and implicitly the structure) of the space . Actually, condition (ii) shows that the norm of each output function in the space is bounded by the norm of the input function in the space uniformly with respect to .

(iii) In the admissibility concept, there is no need to require the uniqueness of the output function in the property (i), because this follows from condition (ii). Indeed, if the pair is uniformly admissible for the system , then from (ii) we deduce that for every and every there exists *a unique * such that the pair satisfies .

In what follows we will analyze the implications of the uniform admissibility of the pair with concerning the asymptotic behavior of skew-product flows. With this purpose we introduce two category of subspaces (stable and unstable) and we will point out their role in the detection of the uniform dichotomy.

For every , we consider the function
called *the trajectory* determined by the vector and the point .

For every , we denote by the linear space of all functions with the property that
For every , we consider the * stable subset *
and, respectively, the *unstable subset *

*Remark 3.8. * It is easy to see that for every , and are linear subspaces. Therefore, in all what follows, we will refer as the stable subspace and, respectively, as the unstable subspace, for each .

Proposition 3.9. *For every , the following assertions hold: *(i)*;*(ii)*.*

*Proof. *The property (i) is immediate. To prove the assertion (ii) let be given by Definition 3.2(ii). Let . Let . Then, there is with . We set , and we consider
We observe that , for all , and since , we deduce that . Using the fact that , we obtain that
Then, we define the function and since is invariant under translations, we deduce that . Moreover, from (3.6), it follows that
The relation (3.7) implies that , so .

Conversely, let . Then, there is with . Taking , we have that and
In particular, for , from (3.8), we deduce that . This implies that . Then, and the proof is complete.

*Remark 3.10. * From Proposition 3.9(ii), we have that for every the restriction is surjective. We also note that according to Proposition 3.9 one may deduce that, the stable subspace and the unstable subspace are candidates for the possible splitting of the main space required by any dichotomous behavior.

In what follows, we will study the behavior of the cocycle on the stable subspace and also on the unstable subspace and we will deduce several interesting properties of these subspaces in the hypothesis that a pair of spaces from the class is admissible for the control system associated with the skew-product flow.

Theorem 3.11 (The behavior on the stable subspace). * If the pair is uniformly admissible for the system , then the following assertions hold: *(i)*there is such that , for all , all and all ; *(ii)* is a closed linear subspace, for all .*

*Proof. *Let be given by Definition 3.6 and let be given by Definition 3.2. Let be a continuous function with and .

(i) Let and let . We consider the functions

Using relations (3.11) and (3.14), we have that
Since , for all , setting , we deduce that , for all . Taking into account that does not depend on or , it follows that

(ii) Let and let with . For every , we consider the sequence
We have that , for all and using similar arguments with those used in relation (3.10), we obtain that , for all . An easy computation shows that the pair satisfies . Let . Then, . According to our hypothesis there is, such that the pair satisfies . Taking and we observe that , and the pair satisfies . This implies that
From , for all and all , we deduce that
From (3.18) and (3.19), it follows that in . From Remark 2.4(ii), we have that there is a subsequence and a negligible set such that , for all . In particular, it follows that there is such that
Because the pair satisfies , we obtain that
This shows that , for all . Then, from
using the fact that and Remark 2.4(i), we obtain that , so .

In conclusion, is a closed linear subspace, for all .

Theorem 3.12 (The behavior on the unstable subspace). * If the pair is uniformly admissible for the system , then the following assertions hold: *(i)*there is such that , for all , all and all ;*(ii)* is a closed linear subspace, for all .*

*Proof. *Let be given by Definition 3.6 and let be given by Definition 3.2. Let be a continuous function with and .

(i) Let and let . Then, there is with . Let . We consider the functions

From (3.24) and Remark 2.4(i), we deduce that . An easy computation shows that the pair satisfies . Then, according to our hypothesis, we have that
From , for all , we obtain that
Since , for all , we have that
Using the invariance under translations of the space from relation (3.27), we obtain that
Taking from relations (3.25), (3.26), and (3.28), it follows that . Taking into account that does not depend on or , we conclude that

(ii) Let and let with . Then, for every , there is with . For every , we consider the functions
We have that , and, using similar arguments with those used in relation (3.24), we deduce that , for all . An easy computation shows that the pair satisfies . Let
According to our hypothesis, there is such that the pair satisfies . In particular, this implies that . Moreover, for every , the pair satisfies . According to our hypothesis, it follows that
We have that , for all and all , so
From (3.32) and (3.33) it follows that in . Then, from Remark 2.4(ii), there is a subsequence and a negligible set such that , for all . In particular, there is such that . Since , we successively deduce that
This implies that , so is a closed linear subspace.

Taking into account the above results it makes sense to study whether the uniform admissibility of a pair of function spaces from the class is a sufficient condition for the existence of the uniform dichotomy. Thus, the main result of this section is as follows.

Theorem 3.13 (Sufficient condition for uniform dichotomy). * Let and let be a skew-product flow on . If the pair is uniformly admissible for the system , then is uniformly dichotomic.*

*Proof. *Let be given by Definition 3.6. Let be given by Definition 3.2. Let be a continuous function with and .

*Step 1. *We prove that , for all .

Let and let . Then, there is with . We consider the function

*Step 2. *We prove that , for all .

Setting from (3.36), we have that , for all . It follows that
From relation (3.37) and Remark 2.4(i) we obtain that , so . This shows that , so .

According to Steps 1 and 2, Theorem 3.11(ii), and Theorem 3.12(ii), we deduce that
For every we denote by the projection with the property that
Using Proposition 3.9 we obtain that
Let . From Proposition 3.9(ii), it follows that the restriction is correctly defined and surjective. According to Theorem 3.12(ii) we have that is also injective, so this is an isomorphism, for all .*Step 3. *We prove that .

Let and let . Let and let . Since , there is with . We consider the functions

from (3.42), we deduce that . An easy computation shows that the pair satisfies . This implies that
Since , we have that , for all . This implies that
and we obtain that
Using the invariance under translations of the space , from relation (3.45) we deduce that
In addition, from
we obtain that
Setting from relations (3.43), (3.46), and (3.48), we have that
This implies that
Taking into account that does not depend on or , it follows that relation (3.50) holds, for all and all , so , for all .Finally, from Theorem 3.11(i) and Theorem 3.12(i), we conclude that is uniformly dichotomic.

*Remark 3.14. * Relation (3.39) shows that the stable subspace and the instable subspace play a central role in the detection of the dichotomous behavior of a skew-product flow and gives a comprehensible motivation for their usual appellation.

#### 4. Exponential Dichotomy of Skew-Product Flows

In the previous section, we have obtained sufficient conditions for the uniform dichotomy of a skew-product flow on in terms of the uniform admissibility of the pair for the associated control system , where . The natural question arises: which are the additional (preferably minimal) hypotheses under which this admissibility may provide the existence of the *exponential* dichotomy? In this context, the main purpose of this section is to establish which are the most general classes of Banach function spaces where or may belong to, such that the uniform admissibility of the pair for the control system is a sufficient (and also a necessary) condition for the existence of exponential dichotomy.

Let be a real or complex Banach space and let be a metric space. Let be a skew-product flow on .

*Definition 4.1. * A skew-product flow is said to be *exponentially dichotomic* if there exist a family of projections and two constants and such that the following properties hold:(i), for all ;(ii), for all , all and all ;(iii)the restriction is an isomorphism, for all ;(iv), for all , all and all .

Before proceeding to the next steps, we need a technical lemma.

Lemma 4.2. *If a skew-product flow is exponentially dichotomic with respect to a family of projections , then .*

*Proof. *Let be given by Definition 4.1 and let be given by Definition 3.2. For every and every , we have that
which implies that
Let be such that . Setting and , it follows that , for all . This implies that , for all , so , for all , and the proof is complete.

*Remark 4.3. *(i) Using Lemma 4.2, we deduce that if a skew-product flow is exponentially dichotomic with respect to a family of projections , then is uniformly dichotomic with respect to the same family of projections.

(ii) If a skew-product flow is exponentially dichotomic with respect to a family of projections , then this family is uniquely determined (see, e.g., [18], Remark 2.5).

*Remark 4.4. * In the description of any dichotomous behavior, the properties (i) and (iii) are inherent, because beside the splitting of the space ensured by the presence of the dichotomy projections, these properties reflect both the invariance with respect to the decomposition induced by each projection as well as the reversibility of the cocycle restricted to the kernel of each projection.

In this context, it is extremely important to note that if in the detection of the dichotomy one assumes from the very beginning that there exist a projection family such that the invariance property (i) and the reversibility condition (iii) hold, then the dichotomy concept is resumed to a stability property (ii) and to an instability condition (iv), which via (iii) will consist only of a double stability. Thus, if in the study of the dichotomy one considers (i) and (iii) as working hypotheses, then the entire investigation is reduced to a quasitrivial case of (double) stability.

In conclusion, in the study of the existence of (uniform or) exponential dichotomy, it is essential to determine conditions *which imply the existence of the projection family* and also the fulfillment of *all* the conditions from Definition 4.1.

Now let be two Banach function spaces such that . According to the main result in the previous section (see Theorem 3.13), if the pair is uniformly admissible for the system , then is uniformly dichotomic with respect to a family of projections with the property that
In what follows, we will see that by imposing some conditions *either* on the output space * or* on the input space , the admissibility becomes a sufficient condition for the exponential dichotomy.

Theorem 4.5 (The behavior on the stable subspace). * Let be two Banach function spaces such that either or . If the pair , is uniformly admissible for the system , then there are such that
*

*Proof. *Let be such that
We prove that there is such that

Let be given by Definition 3.6 and let be given by Definition 3.2.*Case 1. *Suppose that . Let be a continuous function with such that . Since , there is such that

Let and let . If , then we consider the functions
where
