On a bounded domain in , consider the coupled heat equation
subject to Neumann boundary conditions, where is a matrix-valued potential. While the solution to a single heat equation is well-known to converge to an equilibrium as , the matrix potential can for instance introduce the existence of periodic solutions to the equation.
In this talk, we will discuss sufficient conditions for the solutions to the above equation to converge as . We shall see that well-behavedness of the potential with respect to the -unit ball in is a crucial property, here – more precisely speaking, we need that is -dissipative.
What makes our analysis quite interesting is the fact that we need completely different methods for the cases and : in the first case, standard Hilbert space techniques can be used, while the case requires more sophisticated methods from spectral geometry, the geometry of Banach spaces and semigroup theory.
This talk is based on joint work the Alexander Dobrick (Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel)
