We recall some basic definitions and properties of functional analysis: unbounded dissipative operators, the Hille-Yosida semi-group generation theorem, local existence and uniqueness for semilinear problems, with applications to the heat equation and the wave equation in a bounded spatial domain. These preliminaries are useful to define the dynamical systems associated to semilinear PDE of parabolic or hyperbolic type.
