The inviscid limit for the Navier-Stokes equations and the boundary layers

Special Events

Speaker: Fei Wang, University of Maryland
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Mon, Feb 3 2020, 4:10PM

I will talk about the inviscid limit for the Navier-Stokes equations in a half space (in both 2D and 3D case), with initial datum that is analytic only close to the boundary of the domain, and has finite Sobolev regularity in the complement. We prove that for such data the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations converges in the vanishing viscosity limit to the solution of the Euler equation, on a constant time interval. We will also address the blow up of the Prandtl equations in finite time in this talk.

Meet the speaker at a reception starting 3:45pm in front of 1147 MSB. Refreshments will be served.
