We investigate a general nonhomogeneous initial-boundary value problem for a two-dimensional parabolic equation in some anisotropic Hörmander inner product spaces. We prove that the operators corresponding to this problem are isomorphisms between appropriate Hörmander spaces.

The paper deals with the problem of a rigorous description of the evolution of states of large particle quantum systems in terms of correlation operators. A nonperturbative solution to a Cauchy problem of a hierarchy of nonlinear evolution equations for a sequence of marginal correlation operators is constructed. Moreover, in the case where the initial states are specified by a one-particle density operator, the mean field scaling asymptotic behavior of the constructed marginal correlation operators is considered.

We study the behavior of complex dynamical systems describing an attractive interaction between two opponents. We use the stochastic interpretation and describe states of systems in terms of probability distributions (measures) and their densities. For the time evolution we derive specific non-linear difference equations which generalize the well-known Lotka-Volterra equations. Our results state the existence of fixed points (equilibrium states) for various kinds of attractive interactions. Besides, we present an explicit description of the limiting distributions and illustrate abstract results by several examples.
