Winter semester 2022/23:

- Lecture with excercise, course language English: Analytische Halbgruppen

Content of the course:
Important questions in the study of PDEs are those for existence, uniqueness and qualitative behaviour of solutions. In this lecture the focus is on parabolic PDEs and the theory of analytic semigroups as a tool to obtain answers for these questions. The main idea of semigroup theory in this context is to interpret a given PDE as an abstract ODE in an infinite dimensional Banach space. We will see that solutions of linear evolution equations are constructed by a semigroup which may be seen as a generalisation of the matrix exponential for unbounded operators on Banach spaces.
The aim of this lecture course is to give an insight into parts of the basic theory of analytic semigroups and how this theory may be used to solve parabolic evolution equations. We first introduce some fundamental results on analytic semigroups and their infinitesimal generators. Then the lecture is mainly concerned with applications of this theory in the qualitative analysis of parabolic PDEs.
Basic notions of functional analysis and PDEs should be known. Knowledge on strongly continuous semigroups and hyperbolic PDEs is helpful but not necessary.
