Abstract:

Using one of the characterizations of Sobolev spaces, we are able to build an ordered collection of spaces, known as a Sobolev tower, from a closed operator. We can apply this Sobolev tower and its inherent properties to solve evolution problems with nonlocal boundary values. The method is one that can be informally described as not changing the operator, but instead altering the domain of the problem.
