Abstract: We show that a linear operator is closable iff it is possible to weaken the topology on its range in a certain nice way so as to render the operator continuous. We apply this result to show that if is a sequentially complete locally convex Hausdorff space and is a locally equicontinuous semigroup of class in with generator and if (not necessarily belonging to the domain of ) then the function is a solution, in a generalized sense, of the initial value problem , , and that such a generalized solution is unique. It should be noted here that may fail to belong to the domain of so we must assign a suitable meaning to the expression .
