On a semigroup generated by the heat equation with a nonlinear Neumann boundary condition
Pages: 299 – 319
Recently, a nonlinear boundary value problem of the heat equation has been introduced to describe critical heated boiling regimes. Speetjens et al have conjectured that the solution gives rise to semigroup with an attractor being the unstable manifold of its fixed point set. We verify that the solution has indeed that property. But we point out that the semigroup should be considered acting on $L^2$ and not on $H^1$ as suggested in the conjecture.
