Attractors of Weakly Asymptotically Compact Set-Valued Dynamical Systems



The existence of weak attractors is established for set-valued dynamical systems which are weakly asymptotically compact and weakly dissipative. Here weak properties mean with respect to at least one trajectory for each initial value. A condition ensuring the uniqueness of such weak attractors is given. The results are illustrated with an application involving a partial differential inclusion in bounded and unbounded domains.
