Abstract

From the work of C. Conley, it is known that the omega limit set of a precompact orbit of an autonomous semiflow is a chain recurrent set. Here, we improve a result of L. Markus by showing that the omega limit set of a solution of an asymptotically autonomous semiflow is a chain recurrent set relative to the limiting autonomous semiflow. In the special case that there is a Lyapunov function for the limiting semiflow, sufficient conditions are given for an omega limit set of the asymptotically autonomous semiflow to be contained in a level set of the Lyapunov function.
