Title: Zero Viscosity Limit for Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations with Navier Boundary Conditions
Speaker: Professor Yaguang Wang
Speaker Info: Northwestern University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

In this talk, we shall study the zero viscosity limit and behavior of boundary layers in a viscous incompressible flow with the Navier-friction boundary condition. For different relation of the slip lengths to the viscosity, we obtain several criteria on the convergence from the velocity of viscous fluids to that of in-viscous fluids in energy space when the viscosity tends to zero. The asymptotic behavior of boundary layers is derived by using multi-scale analysis.
