The averaging principle and periodic solutions for nonlinear evolution equations at resonance. (English) Zbl 1292.34059
The author considers semilinear differential equations of the form $u'(t)=-Au(t)+\lambda u(t)+F(t,u(t))\quad\text{for }\;t>0, \tag{1}$ where $$\lambda$$ is a real number, $$A: X\supset D(A) \to X$$ is a sectorial operator acting on a Banach space $$X$$ and $$F: [0,+ \infty) \times X^{\alpha} \to X$$ is a continuous mapping (here, $$X^{\alpha}$$ for $$\alpha \in (0,1)$$ is a fractional power space defined by $$X^{\alpha}:=D((A+\delta I)^{\alpha})$$, where $$\delta >0$$ is such that the operator $$A+\delta I$$ is positive definite).
The author begins his examination by considering a special direct sum decomposition of a Banach space $$X:=X_{-}\oplus X_{0}\oplus X_{+}$$. Next, assuming that the mapping $$F$$ depends also on a parameter $$s\in [0,1]$$, he proves, under suitable assumptions on $$F$$ and $$A$$, that the equation ({1}) possesses a unique mild solution, and he discusses the continuity of mild solutions, with respect to initial data and parameters.
Further, assuming that the nonlinearity in the equation ({1}) is of the form $$\epsilon F$$, where $$\epsilon \in[0,1]$$ is a parameter, he proves the resonant version of the averaging principle for such equation, expressing the fixed point index of the translation along trajectories in terms of the averaging of the right-hand side of the equation under consideration.
In Section 5, which seems to be the main part of this paper, the author, imposing some geometrical conditions on the nonlinearity $$F$$, proves the index formula for periodic solutions to the equation ({1}) being at resonanse at infinity, which determines the Leray-Schauder degree of the vector field $$I-\Phi_{T}$$, where $$\Phi_{T}: X^{\alpha} \to X^{\alpha}$$ denotes the translation along trajectories, with respect to a ball with sufficiently large radius. Obviously, this theorem is a tool for looking for fixed points of the operator $$\Phi_{T}$$. As an application, the author studies the existence of $$T$$-periodic solutions for partial differential equation of the form $u_{t}(t,x)=-{\mathcal A}u(t,x)+\lambda u(t,x)+f(t,x,u(t,x),\nabla u(t,x)),\quad t>0,\;x\in\Omega,$ being at resonanse at infinity, where $$\lambda \in \mathbb R$$, $$f: [0,+\infty) \times \mathbb R \times \mathbb R \to \mathbb R$$ is a continuous mapping satisfying suitable assumptions ($$\Omega\in\mathbb R^n$$ denotes here an open bounded set with the boundary $$\partial \Omega$$ of the class $$C^{\infty}$$) and $${\mathcal A}$$ is a second order differential operator.
