Title:The inviscid limit of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations for flows with nondecaying vorticity
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Elaine Cozzi, Drexel University
We consider solutions of the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations in the plane with bounded, nondecaying vorticity. Under these assumptions we show that as viscosity approaches zero, finite energy solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to the solution of the Euler equations uniformly in space, where convergence holds for any finite time. We also study the case where velocity is bounded and does not necessarily decay at infinity, and we establish a similar short time convergence result.
