Abstract formulation of the Cole-Hopf transform


Operator representation of Cole-Hopf transform is obtained based on the logarithmic representation of infinitesimal generators. For this purpose the relativistic formulation of abstract evolution equation is introduced. Even independent of the spatial dimension, the Cole-Hopf transform is generalized to a transform between linear and nonlinear equations defined in Banach spaces. In conclusion a role of transform between the evolution operator and its infinitesimal generator is understood in the context of generating nonlinear semigroup.

Key words: Cole-Hopf transform, logarithm of operator, nonlinear semigroup.
