|Title:||Infinite-energy 2D statistical solutions to the equations of incompressible fluids|
|Seminar:||Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||James P. Kelliher, University of California, Riverside|
|We develop the concept of an infinite-energy statistical solution to the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations in the whole plane. We use a velocity formulation with enough generality to encompass initial velocities having bounded vorticity, which includes the important special case of vortex patch initial data. Our approach is to use well-studied properties of statistical solutions in a ball of radius R to construct, in the limit as R goes to infinity, an infinite-energy solution to the Navier-Stokes equations. We then construct an infinite-energy statistical solution to the Euler equations by making a vanishing viscosity argument.|
