Nonlinear Analysis Seminar and Differential Equation Seminar: Weinan Wang, University of Oklahoma, Global well-posedness and the stabilization phenomenon for some two-dimensional fluid equations
October 4 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
In this talk, I will talk about some recent well-posedness and stability results for several fluid models in 2D. More precisely, I will discuss the global well-posedness for the 2D Boussinesq equations with fractional dissipation. For the Oldroyd-B model, we show that small smooth data lead to global and stable solutions. When Navier-Stokes is coupled with the magnetic field in the magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) system, solutions near a background magnetic field are shown to be always global in time. The magnetic field stabilizes the fluid. In all these examples the systems governing the perturbations can be converted to damped wave equations, which reveal the smoothing and stabilizing effect.
