Title:Mixed type boundary value problems
Seminar:Hyperbolic and Mixed Type PDEs Seminar
Speaker:Joe Roberts, Penn State University
I will discuss some mixed type boundary value problems relevant to the study of the two-dimensional steady Euler equations. I will present some existence and uniqueness results for linear problems, and explain how certain solvability conditions do not hold for perturbation problems for transonic flows with a local supersonic region in a channel. Therefore the solutions to the linearized equations must have singularities, corresponding to shocks in the nonlinear equations. These topics are from Chapters 1 and 3 of \emph{Boundary Value Problems for Transonic Flow} by A. G. Kuz'min.
