THE a-DRAZIN INVERSE AND ERGODIC BEHAVIOUR OF SEMIGROUPS AND COSINE OPERATOR FUNCTIONS

JOURNAL OF OPERATOR THEORY | THETA FOUNDATION | Published : 2009
The paper introduces a special type of a Drazin-like inverse for closed linear operators that arises naturally in ergodic theory of operator semigroups and cosine operator functions. The Drazin inverse for closed linear operators defined by Nashed and Zhao and in a more general form by Koliha and Tran is not sufficiently general to be applicable to operator semigroups. The a-Drazin inverse is in general a closed, not necessarily bounded, operator. The paper gives applications of the inverse to partial differential equations. © Copyright by THETA, 2009.
