Nonuniform Exponential Dichotomies and Lyapunov Functions
2017, vol. 22, no. 3, pp.  197-209
Abstract
For the nonautonomous dynamics defined by a sequence of bounded linear operators acting on an arbitrary Hilbert space, we obtain a characterization of the notion of a nonuniform exponential dichotomy in terms of quadratic Lyapunov sequences. We emphasize that, in sharp contrast with previous results, we consider the general case of possibly noninvertible linear operators, thus requiring only the invertibility along the unstable direction. As an application, we give a simple proof of the robustness of a nonuniform exponential dichotomy under sufficiently small linear perturbations.

Admissibility and Nonuniform Exponential Trichotomies
2015, vol. 20, no. 1, pp.  49-62
Abstract
For a nonautonomous dynamics defined by a sequence of linear operators acting on a Banach space, we show that the notion of a nonuniform exponential trichotomy can be completely characterized in terms of admissibility properties. This refers to the existence of bounded solutions under any bounded time-dependent perturbation of certain homotheties of the original dynamics. We also consider the more restrictive notion of a strong nonuniform exponential trichotomy and again we give a characterization in terms of admissibility properties. We emphasize that both notions are ubiquitous in the context of ergodic theory. As a nontrivial application, we show in a simple manner that the two notions of trichotomy persist under sufficiently small linear perturbations. Finally, we obtain a corresponding characterization of nonuniformly partially hyperbolic sets.
