|Title:||On the well-posedness of the hydrostatic limit in fluid mechanics|
|Seminar:||Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Michael Renardy, Virginia Tech Math|
|The talk will review some recent results on the well-posedness of the hydrostatic Euler equations. In particular, the role of boundary conditions (walls or free surface) will be emphasized. The results show that well-posedness of these equations is not a local property, for instance, it turns out that flows with one free surface are well-posed while flows with two free surfaces are ill-posed. It is also shown that magnetic fields or fluid elasticity can restore the well-posedness of the equations. I shall also discuss the implications for boundary layers in high Weissenberg number viscoelastic flows|
