Let T(t) (t\(\geq 0)\) be a \(C^ r\)-semigroup on a Banach space. In this paper several conceptions, such as positive orbit \(\gamma^+(x)\), negative orbit \(\gamma^-(x)\), \(\omega\)-limit set \(\omega\) (x) of \(x\in X\), \(\alpha\)-limit set \(\alpha\) (x), global orbit, invariant set, and attractor, are defined. Then some conditions are imposed on T(t) to ensure that there is a compact attractor A and the stability properties of an attractor A are discussed. Considerable attention is also devoted to gradient systems, existence conditions for a compact attractor and the flow on the attractor. Finally, the dynamics of scalar parabolic equations are studied.
