**Lectures on Semi-group Theory and its Application to Cauchy's Problem in Partial Differential Equations**

by K. Yosida

**Publisher**: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1957**ISBN/ASIN**: B0007J817I**Number of pages**: 160

**Description**:

In these lectures, we shall be concerned with the differentiability and the representation of one-parameter semi-groups of bounded linear operators on a Banach space and with some of their applications to the initial value problem (Cauchy's problem) for differential equations, especially for the diffusion equation (heat equation) and the wave equation.
