Well posedness and the global attractor of some quasi-linear parabolic equations with nonlinear dynamic boundary conditions. (English) Zbl 1240.35307

Summary: We consider a quasi-linear parabolic equation with nonlinear dynamic boundary conditions occurring as generalizations of semilinear reaction-diffusion equations with dynamic boundary conditions and various other phase-field models, such as the isothermal Allen-Cahn equation with dynamic boundary conditions. We thus formulate a class of initial and boundary value problems whose global existence and uniqueness is proved by means of an appropriate Faedo-Galerkin approximation scheme developed for problems with dynamic boundary conditions. We analyze the asymptotic behavior of the solutions within the theory of infinite-dimensional dynamical systems. In particular, we demonstrate the existence of the global attractor.
