Systèmes dynamiques dissipatifs et applications. (Dissipative dynamical systems and applications). (French) Zbl 0726.58001

Inspired by the classical stability results of Lyapunov and La Salle- Lefschetz, the author and others over the years developed a theory within the framework of functional analysis that deals with corresponding questions concerning such partial differential equations as the wave equation with linear dissipation and the heat equation. This booklet presents a uniform treatment of the stability theory of dynamical systems applying to nonlinear evolution equations in infinite dimensions as well as ordinary differential equations in finite dimensions.
The chapters are headed as follows. 0: Introduction and preliminaries. 1: Basic notions. 2: The invariance principle and applications. 3: Some stability considerations. 4: Partial dissipation and almost periodic trajectories. 5: Attractors of autonomous systems. 6: Non autonomous systems. 7: Stability of non autonomous systems. 8: Attractors of non autonomous systems. 9: Bibliographical comments.
