Title:Global solutions for the Burgers-Hilbert equation
Seminar:Hyperbolic and Mixed Type PDEs Seminar
Speaker:Alberto Bressan, Penn State University
The Burgers-Hilbert equation has been derived by J.Biello and J.Hunter as a model for nonlinear waves with constant frequency. This talk will present some recent results (in collaboration with Khai Nguyen). Namely: the global existence of entropy weak solutions, a priori estimates in L^2 and in L^\infty, and a uniqueness result in the spatially periodic case. Open questions, concerning the uniqueness and stability of solutions, and the onset of singularities, will be discussed.
