Some Mathematical Theories of Boundary Layers with no-slip Boundary Condition

4 September 2017

After a brief review on the classical Prandtl system, we introduce our recent work on the well-posedness and high Reynolds numbers limit for the MHD boundary layer that shows the tangential magnetic field stabilizes the boundary layer. And then we will discuss some instability phenomena of the shear flow for both the classical Prandtl and MHD boundary layer systems. The talk includes some recent joint works with Chengjie Liu, Yaguang Wang on the classical Prandtl equation, and with Chengjie Liu and Feng Xie on the magnetohydrodynamic boundary layer.
