Moving Interfaces and Quasilinear Parabolic Evolution by Jan Prüss, Gieri Simonett

By Jan Prüss, Gieri Simonett

In this monograph, the authors strengthen a finished method for the mathematical research of a wide range of difficulties concerning relocating interfaces. It comprises an in-depth examine of summary quasilinear parabolic evolution equations, elliptic and parabolic boundary price difficulties, transmission difficulties, one- and two-phase Stokes difficulties, and the equations of incompressible viscous one- and two-phase fluid flows. the idea of maximal regularity, an important aspect, can be absolutely constructed. The authors current a latest process in keeping with strong instruments in classical research, sensible research, and vector-valued harmonic analysis.

The concept is utilized to difficulties in two-phase fluid dynamics and section transitions, one-phase generalized Newtonian fluids, nematic liquid crystal flows, Maxwell-Stefan diffusion, and various geometric evolution equations. The booklet additionally contains a dialogue of the underlying actual and thermodynamic rules governing the equations of fluid flows and part transitions, and an exposition of the geometry of relocating hypersurfaces.

We derive all of the aforementioned geometric quantities for Γρ in terms of ρ and Σ. It is also important to study the mapping properties of these quantities in dependence of ρ, and to derive expressions for their variations. For instance, we show that κ (0) = tr L2Σ + ΔΣ , where κ = κ(ρ) denotes the mean curvature of Γρ , LΣ the Weingarten tensor of Σ, and ΔΣ the Laplace-Beltrami operator on Σ. This is done in Section 2. We also study the first and second variations of the area and volume functional, respectively.

Here we assume 1 = 2 =: , σ nonconstant. Experience shows that σ is strictly decreasing and positive at melting temperature 32 Chapter 1. Problems and Strategies θm , and as σ is also concave, it has a unique zero θc > θm ; we call θc the critical temperature. As beyond the critical temperature there is no phase separation anymore, we restrict to the temperature range θ ∈ (0, θc ). Here the model equations read (∂t u + u · ∇u) − div S + ∇π = 0 div u = 0 [[u]] = 0, in Ω \ Γ(t), in Ω \ Γ(t), u=0 on ∂Ω, PΓ u Γ = P Γ u on Γ(t), −[[T νΓ ]] = σ(θΓ )HΓ νΓ + σ (θΓ )∇Γ θΓ u(0) = u0 on Γ(t), in Ω.

C) The critical points of the entropy functional for prescribed total mass and total energy are precisely the equilibria of the system. (d) The non-degenerate equilibria are zero velocities, constant pressures in the components of the phases, and the interface is a union of non-intersecting spheres which do not touch the outer boundary ∂Ω. If phase transition is present, then the spheres are of equal size. 32) holds. (f ) The set E of non-degenerate equilibria forms a real analytic manifold. This result shows that the models are thermodynamically consistent, hence are physically reasonable.
