Asymptotic equivalence and Kobayashi-type estimates for nonautonomous monotone operators in Banach spaces

Abstract: We provide a sharp generalization to the nonautonomous case of the well-known Ko\-ba\-yashi estimate for proximal iterates associated with maximal monotone operators. We then derive a bound for the distance between a continuous-in-time trajectory, namely the solution to the differential inclusion $\dot{x} + A(t)x\ni 0$, and the corresponding proximal iterations. We also establish continuity properties with respect to time of the nonautonomous flow under simple assumptions by revealing their link with the function $t\mapsto A(t)$. Moreover, our sharper estimations allow us to derive equivalence results which are useful to compare the asymptotic behavior of the trajectories defined by different evolution systems. We do so by extending a classical result of Passty to the nonautonomous setting.
