This project aims to study the topics of spectral theory of operators, theory of semigroups and their generators and geometric theory of parabolic semilinear differential equations, and then to apply such knowledge to analyze the semilinear Chafee-Infante equation. Finally, we seek to study stability and hyperbolicity of equilibria for a non-local quasilinear Chafee-Infante equation, making use of a method of linearization for quasilinear problems, which has been developed in [1], in order to conclude that the saddle-point property holds for the equilibria of this equation.
