Study of the Prandtl boundary layer theory

9 May 2014
Prof. Ya-Guang Wang
We shall talk our recent works on the well-posedness of the Prandtl boundary layer equations both in two and three space variables. For the two-dimensional problem, we obtain the well-posedness in the Sobolev spaces by using an energy method under the monotonicity assumption of tangential velocity, and for the three-dimensional Prandtl equations, we construct a special solution by using the Corocco transformation, and obtain it is linearly stable with respect to any three-dimensional perturbation. These works are collaborated with R. Alexandre, C. J. Liu, C. Xu and T. Yang.
