The asymptotic behaviour, in particular "stability" in some sense, is studied systematically for discrete and for continuous linear dynamical systems on Banach spaces. Of particular concern is convergence to an equilibrium with respect to various topologies. Parallels and differences between the discrete and the continuous situation are emphasised.

Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"This nice volume gives a good introduction to the asymptotic behaviour of linear dynamical systems. . This volume leads to the frontiers of recent research in a rapidly developing area of mathematics. It can be warmly recommended to researchers and graduate students interested in this field." (László Kérchy, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum (Szeged), Vol. 78 (1-2), 2012)"The author's aim is to emphasise similarities between the discrete and continuous cases. . A reader who is new to the subject might prefer that the book included more motivational discussions . . the mathematical arguments throughout the book are presented in a style that makes them easy to follow. . it has value as a convenient reference text for comparison of the discrete and continuous cases of stability in operator theory and for exposition of links to ergodic theory." (C. J. K. Batty, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 f)
