We prove regularization for the ill-posed, semilinear evolution problem , , with initial condition in a Hilbert space where D is a positive, self-adjoint operator in the space. As in recent literature focusing on linear equations, regularization is established by approximating a solution u(t) of the problem by the solution of an approximate well-posed problem. The approximate problem will be defined by one specific approximation of the operator A(t,D) which extends a recently introduced, modified quasi-reversibility method by Boussetila and Rebbani. Finally, we demonstrate our theory with applications to a wide class of nonlinear partial differential equations in spaces including the nonlinear backward heat equation with a time-dependent diffusion coefficient.
