## Abstract:

Autonomous systems depend only on the elapsed time, so their attractors and limit sets exist in current time. Similarly, the pullback limit defines a component set of a nonautonomous pullback attractor at each instant of current time. The forward limit defining a nonautonomous forward attractor is different as it is the limit to the asymptotically distant future. In particular, the limiting objects forward in time do not have the same dynamical meaning in current time as in the autonomous or pullback cases. Nevertheless, the pullback limit taken within a positively invariant family of compact subsets allows the component set of a forward attractor to be constructed at each instant of current time. Every forward attractor has such a positively invariant family of compact subsets, which ensures that the component sets of a forward attractor can be constructed in this way. It is, however, only a necessary condition and not sufficient for the constructed family of subsets to be a forward attractor. The analysis here is presented in the state space $\mathbb {R}^d$ to focus on the dynamical essentials rather than on functional analytical technicalities; in particular, those concerning asymptotic compactness properties.## References
