Asymptotic properties of mild solutions of nonautonomous evolution equations with applications to retarded differential equations

Received18 May 1999

Abstract

We investigate the asymptotic properties of the inhomogeneous nonautonomous evolution equation (d/dt)u(t)=Au(t)+B(t)u(t)+f(t),t, where (A,D(A)) is a Hille-Yosida operator on a Banach space X,B(t),t, is a family of operators in (D(A)¯,X) satisfying certain boundedness and measurability conditions and fLloc1(,X). The solutions of the corresponding homogeneous equations are represented by an evolution family (UB(t,s))ts. For various function spaces we show conditions on (UB(t,s))ts and f which ensure the existence of a unique solution contained in . In particular, if (UB(t,s))ts is p-periodic there exists a unique bounded solution u subject to certain spectral assumptions on UB(p,0),f and u. We apply the results to nonautonomous semilinear retarded differential equations. For certain p-periodic retarded differential equations we derive a characteristic equation which is used to determine the spectrum of (UB(t,s))ts.
