Title:Mathematical theory of the boundary layer equations
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:David Gérard-Varet, Mathematics, Université Denis Diderot Paris 7
We shall discuss the mathematical theory of the Prandtl equations, involved in the description of high Reynolds number flows near a solid wall. The Cauchy problem for these equations is tricky, and turns out to be very dependent on the choice of the functional spaces, due to underlying fluid instabilities. The talk (or at least the end of it) will be based on recent joint work with N. Masmoudi.
