"Asymptotic behaviour for a class of nonlocal problems"

ABSTRACT: We propose new techniques to study the asymptotic behaviour of problems of the type:

 

 

$\displaystyle \left\{\begin{array}{rcccl} u_t - a(l(u(t)))\Delta u + u &=& f(x)...
...mathbb{R}^+\\  u(\cdot,0) &=& u_0\quad &\hbox{ in }& \Omega, \end{array}\right.$ (1)

where

$\displaystyle l(u(.,t))= \int_{\Omega} g(x)~u(x,t)dx$

and $ f$, $ g\in L^2(\Omega)$, $ a$ is some continuous function.

cm

In particular we show that finding the associated stationary solutions to (1) reduces to find the solutions of an equation in $ {\bf R}$. Using some Lyapunov functions or some direct methods we are then able to establish various convergence results.
