Dynamics of Viscous Compressible Fluids

Eduard Feireisl


The book presents and develops the most recent ideas and concepts of the mathematical theory of viscous, compressible, and heat conducting fluids. Two main objectives are pursued: (i) global existence theory within the framework of variational solutions for the full Navier-Stokes-Fourier system supplemented with large data, and (ii) optimal existence results for barotropic flows with respect to the available a priori estimates.

Keywords: Navier-Stokes-Fourier system, compressible fluid, viscous fluid, heat conducting fluid, global existence, weak solution
