Summary: The discovery of a priori bounds for semilinear parabolic equations with superlinear nonlinearity enables the use of the parabolic semiflow in proving existence results for equilibria, as an alternative to minimax methods from the calculus of variations. We present an overview of results that use this approach, discuss its shortcomings and advantages, and outline possible future research directions.
