The author proves global existence results of the solutions of parabolic semilinear differential equations involving functionals, of the general form: \(L_ ku_ k=f_ k(t,x,u(\cdot),u_ x(\cdot))\) in (0,T]\(\times \Omega\), \(k=1,...,N\), \(\Omega\) open (bounded) domain in \({\mathbb{R}}^ n\). Here \(L_ k\) is a (non-autonomous) uniformly parabolic linear operator of the second order; the functional dependence on u, \(u_ x\) of the functions \(f_ k\) is, with respect to the time t, of ”delayed” type. The equations are supplemented by boundary conditions of the first or second type, possibly of non-linear type, and appropriate initial conditions. Existence is proved by considering the associated integral equations, making use of fixed point theorems of Banach, Schauder, Tychonoff. The author also outlines a number of models in applied sciences to which its results can be applied. The results extend those existing in the literature, even in the case in which the functional dependence is absent.
