Variation of constants formula for functional parabolic partial differential equations

Alexander Carrasco, Hugo Leiva

This paper presents a variation of constants formula for the system of functional parabolic partial differential equations
 \frac{\partial u(t,x)}{\partial t}
 = D\Delta u+Lu_t+f(t,x), \quad t>0,\; u\in \mathbb{R}^n  \cr
 \frac{\partial u(t,x)}{\partial \eta} = 0, \quad t>0, \; x\in \partial\Omega
 u(0,x) =  \phi(x)  \cr
 u(s,x) = \phi(s,x), \quad s\in[-\tau,0),\; x\in\Omega\,.
Here $\Omega$ is a bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$, the $n\times n$ matrix $D$ is block diagonal with semi-simple eigenvalues having non negative real part, the operator $L$ is bounded and linear, the delay in time is bounded, and the standard notation $u_{t}(x)(s) = u(t+s,x)$ is used.
