Condensing Multivalued Maps and Semilinear Differential Inclusions in Banach Spaces
Aims and Scope
The theory of set-valued maps and of differential inclusion is developed in recent years both as a field of his own and as an approach to control theory. The book deals with the theory of semilinear differential inclusions in infinite dimensional spaces. In this setting, problems of interest to applications do not suppose neither convexity of the map or compactness of the multi-operators. These assumption implies the development of the theory of measure of noncompactness and the construction of a degree theory for condensing mapping. Of particular interest is the approach to the case when the linear part is a generator of a condensing, strongly continuous semigroup. In this context, the existence of solutions for the Cauchy and periodic problems are proved as well as the topological properties of the solution sets. Examples of applications to the control of transmission line and to hybrid systems are presented.
"On the whole, the authors have done an impressive job in presenting material from at least three different areas on not much more than 200 pages. The style is clear, and the presentation is always reliable, leading the reader from first principles to the present state of the art, including a lot of new results." Mathematical Reviews
