2008 DG-MP-PDE Seminar - 01

• Date: 01/10/2008
Lecturer(s):
Alexis Vasseur (University of Texas)
Location:

University of British Columbia

Topic:

A bound from below for the temperature in compressible Navier-Stokes equations

Description:

We consider the full system of compressible Navier-Stokes equations for
heat conducting fluid. We show that the temperature is uniformly
positive for \$t\geq t_0\$ (for any \$t_0>0\$) for any solutions with
finite initial entropy. The assumptions on the viscosity and
conductivity coefficients are minimal (for instance, the global in time
solutions constructed by E. Feireisl verify all the requirements).
