Kinetic equilibration rates for granular media and related equations: entropy dissipation and mass transportation estimates.

José A. CarrilloRobert J. McCannCédric Villani — 2003

Revista Matemática Iberoamericana

The long-time asymptotics of certain nonlinear , nonlocal, diffusive equations with a gradient flow structure are analyzed. In particular, a result of Benedetto, Caglioti, Carrillo and Pulvirenti [4] guaranteeing eventual relaxation to equilibrium velocities in a spatially homogencous model of granular flow is extended and quantified by computing explicit relaxation rates. Our arguments rely on establishing generalizations of logarithmic Sobolev inequalities and mass transportation inequalities,...

Contractivity and Asymptotics in Wasserstein Metrics for Viscous Nonlinear Scalar Conservation Laws

José A. CarrilloMarco Di FrancescoCorrado Lattanzio — 2007

Bollettino dell'Unione Matematica Italiana

In this work, recent results concerning the long time asymptotics of one- dimensional scalar conservation laws with probability densities as initial data are reviewed and further applied to the case of viscous conservation laws with nonlinear degenerate diffusions. The non-strict contraction of the maximal transport distance together with a uniform expansion of the solutions lead to the existence of time-de- pendent asymptotic profiles for a large class of convection-diffusion problems with fully...

Convergence towards self-similar asymptotic behavior for the dissipative quasi-geostrophic equations

José A. CarrilloLucas C. F. Ferreira — 2006

Banach Center Publications

This work proves the convergence in L¹(ℝ²) towards an Oseen vortex-like solution to the dissipative quasi-geostrophic equations for several sets of initial data with suitable decay at infinity. The relative entropy method applies in a direct way for solving this question in the case of signed initial data and the difficulty lies in showing the existence of unique global solutions for the class of initial data for which all properties needed in the entropy approach are met. However, the estimates...
