Dirichlet-to-Robin Operators via Composition Semigroups

  • Lars PerlichEmail author


We show well-posedness for an evolution problem associated with the Dirichlet-to-Robin operator for certain Robin boundary data. Moreover, it turns out that the semigroup generated by the Dirichlet-to-Robin operator is closely related to a weighted semigroup of composition operators on an appropriate Banach space of analytic functions.
