Asymptotic behavior of general nonlinear diffusions

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Jose A. Carrillo, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, and IPAM
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Thu, Mar 6 2008, 11:00AM

Asymptotic profiles for general nonlinear diffusions of the type u_t = Laplacian f(u) on the euclidean space will be characterized by scaling arguments and contractions in the Wasserstein euclidean distance.
