We consider the ideally conducting, viscous magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations in two dimensions. Specifically, we study the nonlinear dynamics near a combination of Couette flow and a constant magnetic field in a periodic infinite channel. In contrast to the Navier-Stokes equations this system is shown to exhibit algebraic instability and large...

We study the evolution of a passive scalar subject to molecular diffusion and advected by an incompressible velocity field on a 2D bounded domain. The velocity field is $u = \nabla^\perp H$, where H is an autonomous Hamiltonian whose level sets are Jordan curves foliating the domain. We focus on the high P\'eclet number regime ($Pe := \nu^{-1} \gg...

In this paper we describe the long‐time behavior of the non‐cutoff Boltzmann equation with soft potentials near a global Maxwellian background on the whole space in the weakly collisional limit (that is, infinite Knudsen number ). Specifically, we prove that for initial data sufficiently small (independent of the Knudsen number), the solution displ...

We consider a 2D incompressible and electrically conducting fluid in the domain $${\mathbb {T}}\times {\mathbb {R}}$$ T × R . The aim is to quantify stability properties of the Couette flow ( y , 0) with a constant homogenous magnetic field $$(\beta ,0)$$ ( β , 0 ) when $$|\beta |>1/2$$ | β | > 1 / 2 . The focus lies on the regime with small fluid...

In this note, we study the long-time dynamics of passive scalars driven by rotationally symmetric flows. We focus on identifying precise conditions on the velocity field in order to prove enhanced dissipation and Taylor dispersion in three-dimensional infinite pipes. As a byproduct of our analysis, we obtain an enhanced decay for circular flows on...

In this paper, we consider the long-term behavior of some special solutions to the Wave Kinetic Equation. This equation provides a mesoscopic description of wave systems interacting nonlinearly via the cubic NLS equation. Escobedo and Velázquez showed that, starting with initial data given by countably many Dirac masses, solutions remain a linear c...

We consider a 2D incompressible and electrically conducting fluid in the domain $\mathbb{T}\times\mathbb{R}$. The aim is to quantify stability properties of the Couette flow $(y,0)$ with a constant homogenous magnetic field $(\beta,0)$ when $|\beta|>1/2$. The focus lies on the regime with small fluid viscosity $\nu$, magnetic resistivity $\mu$ and...

We investigate the long‐time properties of the two‐dimensional inviscid Boussinesq equations near a stably stratified Couette flow, for an initial Gevrey perturbation of size ε. Under the classical Miles‐Howard stability condition on the Richardson number, we prove that the system experiences a shear‐buoyancy instability: the density variation and...

In this paper, we describe the long-time behavior of the non-cutoff Boltzmann equation with soft potentials near a global Maxwellian background on the whole space in the weakly collisional limit (i.e. infinite Knudsen number $1/\nu\to \infty$). Specifically, we prove that for initial data sufficiently small (independent of the Knudsen number), the...

The vorticity of a two-dimensional perfect (incompressible and inviscid) fluid is transported by its area preserving flow. Given an initial vorticity distribution ω0, predicting the long time behavior which can persist is an issue of fundamental importance. In the infinite time limit, some irreversible mixing of ω0 can occur. Since kinetic energy E...

The vorticity of a two-dimensional perfect (incompressible and inviscid) fluid is transported by its area preserving flow. Given an initial vorticity distribution $\omega_0$, predicting the long time behavior which can persist is an issue of fundamental importance. In the infinite time limit, some irreversible mixing of $\omega_0$ can occur. Since...

In this paper, we study the linear stability properties of perturbations around the homogeneous Couette flow for a 2D isentropic compressible fluid in the domain $$\mathbb {T}\times \mathbb {R}$$ T × R . In the inviscid case there is a generic Lyapunov type instability for the density and the irrotational component of the velocity field. More preci...

We consider the Kuramoto–Sivashinsky equation (KSE) on the two-dimensional torus in the presence of advection by a given background shear flow. Under the assumption that the shear has a finite number of critical points and there are linearly growing modes only in the direction of the shear, we prove global existence of solutions with data in L2\doc...

We investigate the long-time properties of the two-dimensional inviscid Boussinesq equations near a stably stratified Couette flow, for an initial Gevrey perturbation of size $\varepsilon$. Under the classical Miles-Howard stability condition on the Richardson number, we prove that the system experiences a shear-buoyancy instability: the density va...

We consider the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation (KSE) on the two-dimensional torus in the presence of advection by a given background shear flow. Under the assumption that the shear has a finite number of critical points, we prove global existence of solutions with data in $L^2$, using a bootstrap argument. The initial data can be taken arbitrarily l...

The Navier–Stokes–Maxwell–Stefan system describes the dynamics of an incompressible gaseous mixture in isothermal condition. In this paper we set up an artificial compressibility type approximation. In particular we focus on the existence of solution for the approximated system and the convergence to the incompressible case. The existence of the ap...

We deal with the problem of separation of time-scales and filamentation in a linear drift-diffusion problem posed on the whole space R2. The passive scalar considered is stirred by an incompressible flow with radial symmetry. We identify a time-scale, much faster than the diffusive one, at which mixing happens along the streamlines, as a result of...

We investigate the linear stability of shears near the Couette flow for a class of 2D incompressible stably stratified fluids. Our main result consists of nearly optimal decay rates for perturbations of stationary states whose velocities are monotone shear flows $(U(y),0)$ and have an exponential density profile. In the case of the Couette flow $U(...

In this paper, we investigate linear stability properties of the 2D isentropic compressible Euler equations linearized around a shear flow given by a monotone profile, close to the Couette flow, with constant density, in the domain $\mathbb{T}\times \mathbb{R}$. We begin by directly investigating the Couette shear flow, where we characterize the li...

In this note we revisit the proof of Bedrossian and Masmoudi [arXiv:1306.5028] about the inviscid damping of planar shear flows in the 2D Euler equations under the assumption of zero mean perturbation. We prove that a small perturbation to the 2D Euler Couette flow in $\mathbb{T}\times \mathbb{R}$ strongly converge to zero, under the additional ass...
