Garbaczewski, Piotr (ed.) et al., Dynamics of dissipation. Invited lectures delivered during the 38th Karpacz winter school of theoretical physics on “Dynamical semigroups: Dissipation, chaos, quanta”, Lądek Zdrój, Poland, February 6–15, 2002. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 3-540-44111-5/hbk). Lect. Notes Phys. 597, 215-238 (2002).
The paper is a survey on some recent results concerning the asymptotic properties of Markov operators and semigroups. Frobenius–Perron operators, stability, sweeping, Foguel alternative and other asymptotic properties are discussed. Applications to differential equations connected with diffusions and jump processes are illustrated. The main results are not proved here but can be found in the large list of references given.
