Pullback Attracting Inertial Manifolds for Nonautonomous Dynamical Systems
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we present an abstract approach to inertial manifolds for nonautonomous dynamical systems. Our result on the existence of inertial manifolds requires only two geometrical assumptions, called cone invariance and squeezing property, and two additional technical assumptions, called boundedness and coercivity property. Moreover we give conditions which ensure that the global pullback attractor is contained in the inertial manifold. In the second part of the paper we consider special nonautonomous dynamical systems, namely two-parameter semi-flows. As a first application of our abstract approach and for reason of comparison with known results we verify the assumptions for semilinear nonautonomous evolution equations whose linear part satisfies an exponential dichotomy condition and whose nonlinear part is globally bounded and globally Lipschitz.
