The Fourier expansion in eigenfunctions of a positive operator is studied with the help of abstract functions of this operator. The rate of convergence is estimated in terms of its eigenvalues, especially for uniform and absolute convergence. Some particular results are obtained for elliptic operators and hyperbolic equations.

In this paper, we introduce a new method for feedback controller design for the complex distributed parameter networks governed by wave equations, which ensures the stability of the closed loop system. This method is based on the uniqueness theory of ordinary differential equations and cutting-edge approach in the graph theory, but it is not a simple extension. As a realization of this idea, we investigate a bush-type wave network. The well-posedness of the closed loop system is obtained via Lax-Milgram’s...

We present an abstract theory of the diffusion phenomenon for second order linear evolution equations in a Hilbert space. To derive the diffusion phenomenon, a new device developed in Ikehata-Matsuyama [5] is applied. Several applications to damped linear wave equations in unbounded domains are also given.

In this article we describe properties of unbounded operators related to evolutionary problems. It is a survey article which also contains several new results. For instance we give a characterization of cosine functions in terms of mild well-posedness of the Cauchy problem of order 2, and we show that the property of having a bounded ${H}^{\infty}$-calculus is stable under rank-1 perturbations whereas the property of being associated with a closed form and the property of generating a cosine function are not....

This paper is concerned with extending Gehring theory to be applicable to Rothe's approximate solutions to hyperbolic differential equations.

Using the Lyapunov-Perron method, we prove the existence of an inertial manifold for the process associated to a class of non-autonomous semilinear hyperbolic equations with finite delay, where the linear principal part is positive definite with a discrete spectrum having a sufficiently large distance between some two successive spectral points, and the Lipschitz coefficient of the nonlinear term may depend on time and belongs to some admissible function spaces.

The model order reduction methodology of reduced basis (RB) techniques offers efficient treatment of parametrized partial differential equations (P2DEs) by providing both approximate solution procedures and efficient error estimates. RB-methods have so far mainly been applied to finite element schemes for elliptic and parabolic problems. In the current study we extend the methodology to general linear evolution schemes such as finite volume schemes for parabolic and hyperbolic evolution equations....

If a second order semilinear conservative equation with esssentially oscillatory solutions such as the wave equation is perturbed by a possibly non monotone damping term which is effective in a non negligible sub-region for at least one sign of the velocity, all solutions of the perturbed system converge weakly to 0 as time tends to infinity. We present here a simple and natural method of proof of this kind of property, implying as a consequence some recent very general results of Judith Vancostenoble....
