The asymptotic completeness of inertial manifolds. (English) Zbl 0898.35016

Summary: An investigation of the asymptotic completeness property for inertial manifolds leads to the concept of ‘flow-normal hyperbolicity’, which is more natural in this case then the traditional form of normal hyperbolicity derived from the linearized flow near the manifold. An example shows that without flow-normal hyperbolicity asymptotic completeness cannot be guaranteed. The analysis also yields a new result on the asymptotic equivalence of ordinary differential equations.
