Eduard Feireisl (Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic): Mathematics and Complete Fluid Systems

This Lecture Course is devoted to the modern mathematical theory of complete fluid systems - the fluid flows satisfying the basic physical principles of conservation of mass, momentum, and energy. Our approach is based on the concept of weak solution introduced in the monograph [M].

The main topics include:

  • Basic equations of mathematical fluid dynamics, the Navier-Stokes-Fourier system
  • Weak vs. strong formulation, basic properties, advantages, shortcomings
  • Nonlinear equations and a priori bounds, global dissipation inequality and related questions
  • Relative entropies, weak-strong uniqueness, long-time behavior of complete fluid systems
  • The property of (weak) sequential stability
  • Principal ideas of the mathematical theory of global-in-time large data solutions, the effective viscous pressure, commutator estimates, div-curl lemma
  • More advanced topics related to complete fluid systems, model reduction and singular limits
