Abstract: 

A modern framework for studying linear differential equations with an initial value is to use semi-groups of operators. This framework generalizes the equation u'+Au = 0 from elementary differential equations in such a way that this same equation can be used to represent a partial differential equations. This talk will introduce several key concepts from the theory of semi-groups of operators, as well as provide examples in the 1 dimensional, n dimensional and infinite dimensional setting.
