We provide a new approach to obtain solutions of evolution equations with nonlinear and nonlocal in time boundary conditions. Both, compact and noncompact semigroups are considered. As an example we show a “principle of huge growth”: every control of a reaction-diffusion system necessarily leads to a profile preserving nonlinear huge growth for an appropriate initial value condition. As another example we apply the approach with noncompact semigroups also to a class of age-population models, based on a hyperbolic conservation law.
