Dear friends and colleagues,
on Monday, 7 June 2021 at 1 PM, Professor Yasunori Maekawa (Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University) is giving a talk in our Asia-Pacific Analysis and PDE Seminar on
Recent progress on the Prandtl boundary layer expansion for viscous incompressible flows .
Determining the behavior of viscous incompressible flows at small viscosity is one of the most fundamental problems in fluid mechanics. In the region away from the boundary the flow is expected to behave as the inviscid flow, while the boundary layer appears in general when the nontrivial physical boundary is present and the classical noslip boundary condition is imposed. In 1904 Ludwig Prandtl proposed the formal expansion describing the behavior of the flows at small viscosity, however, the mathematical justification of this expansion is known as a difficult problem. In this talk we review the recent progress on the mathematical analysis of this problem.
