The main theme of the book is the spectral theory for evolution operators and evolution semigroups, a subject tracing its origins to the classical results of J. Mather on hyperbolic dynamical systems and J. Howland on nonautonomous Cauchy problems. The authors use a wide range of methods and offer a unique presentation.

The authors give a unifying approach for a study of infinite-dimensional nonautonomous problems, which is based on the consistent use of evolution semigroups. This unifying idea connects various questions in stability of semigroups, infinite-dimensional hyperbolic linear skew-product flows, translation Banach algebras, transfer operators, stability radii in control theory, Lyapunov exponents, magneto-dynamics and hydro-dynamics. Thus the book is much broader in scope than existing books on asymptotic behavior of semigroups.

Included is a solid collection of examples from different areas of analysis, PDEs, and dynamical systems. This is the first monograph where the spectral theory of infinite dimensional linear skew-product flows is described together with its connection to the multiplicative ergodic theorem; the same technique is used to study evolution semigroups, kinematic dynamos, and Ruelle operators; the theory of stability radii, an important concept in control theory, is also presented. Examples are included and non-traditional applications are provided.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in the theory of strongly continuous semigroups of linear operators and evolution equations, Banach and \(C^*\)-algebras, infinite-dimensional and hyperbolic dynamical systems, control theory and ergodic theory; engineers, and physicists interested in Lyapunov exponents, transfer operators, etc.


"It was a pleasure to read this monograph, which is written in an agreeable and consistent style ... This excellent exposition should serve as a reference book for further research in these fields employing the powerful methods presented by Chicone and Latushkin."
