This is the translation of an almost unchanged version of the French original [Ellipses, Paris (1990; Zbl 0786.35070)], supplemented by a chapter “Stability of stationary solutions”. In this chapter a version of the principle of linearized stability (“linearized exponential stability implies nonlinear exponential stability”) is developed for abstract semilinear evolution equations in Banach spaces. Moreover, for stationary solutions to boundary value problems for semilinear heat equations results are proved concerning local and global asymptotic stability as well as the connection of stability and positivity (for arbitrary space dimension).

The bibliography presents the state of the art of 1990. Even so, the book is highly recommended as a very clearly written, excellent textbook.
