The paper is devoted to the study of the existence of solutions for nonlinear nonmonotone evolution equations in Banach spaces involving anti-periodic boundary conditions. Our approach in this study relies on the theory of monotone and maximal monotone operators combined with the Schaefer fixed-point theorem and the monotonicity method. We apply our abstract results in order to solve a diffusion equation of Kirchhoff type involving the Dirichlet $p$-Laplace operator.

We establish the existence of solutions for evolution equations in Hilbert spaces with anti-periodic boundary conditions. The energies associated to these evolution equations are quadratic forms. Our approach is based on application of the Schaefer fixed-point theorem combined with the continuity method.

This paper is devoted to the existence and uniqueness of solutions for gradient systems of evolution which involve gradients taken with respect to time-variable inner products. The Gelfand triple $(V,H,{V}^{\text{'}})$ considered in the setting of this paper is such that the embedding $V\hookrightarrow H$ is only continuous.

Local well-posedness of the curve shortening flow, that is, local existence, uniqueness and smooth dependence of solutions on initial data, is proved by applying the Local Inverse Function Theorem and ${L}^{2}$-maximal regularity results for linear parabolic equations. The application of the Local Inverse Function Theorem leads to a particularly short proof which gives in addition the space-time regularity of the solutions. The method may be applied to general nonlinear evolution equations, but is presented...
