    One-sided dichotomies versus two-sided dichotomies: arbitrary growth rates

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of two-sided nonuniform exponential dichotomies with arbitrary growth rates in terms of the existence of one-sided nonuniform exponential dichotomies on the past and on the future. We consider both linear nonautonomous...
