Global existence for one Cauchy problem based on global existence of other two auxiliary Cauchy problems

I have a Cauchy problem for the differential equation \begin{equation} y' = f(t, y), \end{equation} with initial condition $y(0) = y^0$; here, $y$ and $f$ are two-dimensional vector-functions. The ...

Do the solutions of parabolic PDE problems with different initial conditions converge to each other?

Let's say we have a parabolic PDE system: $$ (PDE) \hspace{0.5cm} u_t+f(u)_x=\mu \cdot u_{xx}, $$ where $x \in A \subseteq \mathbb{R}$, $t \in [0,T]$ and $u \in \mathbb{R}^n, \: n\geq 2$. And let's ...

Initial value problem with heterogeneous initial values

In all the references I checked the standard initial value problem for an ODE is stated as: \begin{equation} \begin{cases} y'=F(y,t)\\ y(t_0)=y_0 \end{cases} \end{equation} for some $F:\mathbb{R}^{n+...

Infinitesimal generator of a semigroup with parameter

When we talk about evolution equation the first idea that comes to the mind is the semigroups theory. This theory deals with Cauchy problems of the form $$\frac{{\partial u}}{{\partial t}} = Au,$$ ...
