On Uniform Exponential Stability of Exponentially Bounded Evolution Families

Abstract.

A result of Barbashin ([1], [15]) states that an exponentially bounded evolution family \(\{U(t, s)\}_{t \geq s \geq 0}\) defined on a Banach space and satisfying some measurability conditions is uniformly exponentially stable if and only if for some 1 ≤ p < ∞, we have that:

$$\mathop {\sup}\limits_{t \geq 0} \int^{t}_{0} ||U(t, s)||^{p} ds < \infty .$$

Actually the Barbashin result was formulated for non-autonomous differential equations in the framework of finite dimensional spaces. Here we replace the above ”uniform” condition be a ”strong” one.

Among others we shall prove that the evolution family \(\{U(t, s)\}_{t \geq s \geq 0}\) is uniformly exponentially stable if there exists a non-decreasing function \(\phi : {\bf R}_+ \rightarrow {\bf R}_+\) with \(\phi(r) > 0\) for all r > 0 such that for each \(x^{*} \in X^{*}\), one has:

$$\mathop {\sup}\limits_{t \geq 0} \int^{t}_{0} \phi (||U(t, s)^{*}x^{*}||) ds < \infty .$$

In particular, the family U is uniformly exponentially stable if and only if for some 0 < p < ∞ and each \(x^{*} \in X^{*}\), the inequality

$$\mathop {\sup}\limits_{t \geq 0} \int^t_0 ||U(t, s)^{*}x^{*}||^p ds < \infty$$

is fulfilled. The latter result extends a similar one from the recent paper [4]. Related results for periodic evolution families are also obtained.
