PDE Seminar

Eventually Positive Semigroups


Daniel Daners

Mon 15 September 2014 2-3pm, Carslaw 829 (AGR)


We consider one-parameter semigroups of linear operators etA on C(K) such that for every f > 0 there exists t0 > 0 so that etAf > 0 for all t > t0. The purpose of the talk is to give a general theory of such eventually positive semigroups and characterise them in terms of positivity properties of the resolvent (λI - A)-1 and the spectral projection associated with the spectral bound.

Examples of eventually positive semigroups include the semigroup generated by the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator, delay differential equations, higher order parabolic equations and some matrix semigroups.

This is joint work with Wolfgang Arendt, Jochen Glück and James Kennedy.
