Maximal $L^2$-regularity in nonlinear gradient systems and perturbations of sublinear growth

Wolfgang Arendt and Daniel Hauer

Vol. 2 (2020), No. 1, 23–34

The nonlinear semigroup generated by the subdifferential of a convex lower semicontinuous function φ has a smoothing effect, discovered by Haïm Brezis, which implies maximal regularity for the evolution equation. We use this and Schaefer’s fixed point theorem to solve the evolution equation perturbed by a Nemytskii operator of sublinear growth. For this, we need that the sublevel sets of φ are not only closed, but even compact. We apply our results to the p-Laplacian and also to the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator with respect to p-harmonic functions.
