Abstract: Suppose a given evolutionary equation has a compact attractor and the evolutionary equation is approximated by a finite-dimensional system. Conditions are given to ensure the approximate system has a compact attractor which converges to the original one as the approximation is refined. Applications are given to parabolic and hyperbolic partial differential equations.
