Title:Boundary layer analysis for non-linear channel flows
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Anna Mazzucato, Penn State
Abstract:
I will discuss some recent results concerning the vanishing viscosity limit, that is, whether solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to solutions of the Euler equations as viscosity vanishes. This problem is essentially open in bounded domains. I will present classes of non-linear flows in channels where the limit holds and where a detailed analysis of the boundary layer is possible. This is joint work with Donjuan Niu, Xiaoming Wang, and Michael Taylor.
