A non-local theory of superfluidity

Mauro Fabrizio, Giorgio Gentili (1987)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

We will formulate a macroscopic theory of Superfluidity, using a particular constitutive equation of differential form which we will demonstrate to be equivalent to a non-local relation between the stress and the density.

A numerical scheme for the quantum Boltzmann equation with stiff collision terms

Francis Filbet, Jingwei Hu, Shi Jin (2012)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

Numerically solving the Boltzmann kinetic equations with the small Knudsen number is challenging due to the stiff nonlinear collision terms. A class of asymptotic-preserving schemes was introduced in [F. Filbet and S. Jin,J. Comput. Phys. 229 (2010) 7625–7648] to handle this kind of problems. The idea is to penalize the stiff collision term by a BGK type operator. This method, however, encounters its own difficulty when applied to the quantum Boltzmann equation. To define the quantum Maxwellian...

Convergent semidiscretization of a nonlinear fourth order parabolic system

Ansgar Jüngel, René Pinnau (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

A semidiscretization in time of a fourth order nonlinear parabolic system in several space dimensions arising in quantum semiconductor modelling is studied. The system is numerically treated by introducing an additional nonlinear potential. Exploiting the stability of the discretization, convergence is shown in the multi-dimensional case. Under some assumptions on the regularity of the solution, the rate of convergence proves to be optimal.

The system is numerically treated by introducing an additional nonlinear potential. Exploiting the stability of the discretization, convergence is shown in the multi-dimensional case.

Einstein-Euler equations for matter spacetimes with Gowdy symmetry

Philippe G. LeFloch (2008/2009)

Séminaire Équations aux dérivées partielles

We investigate the initial value problem for the Einstein-Euler equations of general relativity under the assumption of Gowdy symmetry on T 3 . Given an arbitrary initial data set, we establish the existence of a globally hyperbolic future development and we provide a global foliation of this spacetime in terms of a geometrically defined time-function coinciding with the area of the orbits of the symmetry group. This allows us to construct matter spacetimes with weak regularity which admit, both, impulsive...
