# Nonlinear Analysis Seminar and Differential Equation Seminar: Liviu Ignat, Institute of Mathematics, Simion Stoilow of the Romanian Academy, Romania, Asymptotic behavior of solutions for some diffusion problems on metric graphs

## September 20 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

In this talk we present some recent result about the long time behavior of the solutions for some diffusion processes on a metric graph. We study evolution problems on a metric connected finite graph in which some of the edges have infinity length. We show that the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions of the heat equation (or even some nonlocal diffusion problems) is given by the solution of the heat equation, but on a star shaped graph in which there is only one node and as many infinite edges as in the original graph. In this way we obtain that the compact component that consists in all the vertices and all the edges of finite length can be reduced to a single point when looking at the asymptotic behaviour of the solutions. We prove that when time is large the solution behaves like a gaussian profile on the infinite edges. When the nonlinear convective part is present we obtain similar results but only on a star shaped tree.

This is a joint work with Cristian Cazacu (University of Bucharest), Ademir Pazoto (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro), Julio D. Rossi (University of Buenos Aires) and Angel San Antolin (University of Alicante).
