### Basic semigroup theory

#### Abstract

In these lectures we discuss and explain the basic theory of continuous one-parameter semigroups from two different points of view. The semigroups can be considered as providing an abstract framework for the solution of evolution equations which will be described at greater length in the lectures of Ecker and Urbas or as providing the basic elements of the functional calculus to be developed in the lectures of Albrecht, Duong and Mcintosh.
