In the context of hyperbolic systems of balance laws, the Shizuta–Kawashima coupling condition guarantees that all the variables of the system are dissipative even though the system is not totally dissipative. Hence it plays a crucial role in terms of sufficient conditions for the global in time existence of classical solutions. However, it is easy...

This article is concerned with the rigorous justification of the hydrostatic limit for continuously stratified incompressible fluids under the influence of gravity. The main peculiarity of this work with respect to previous studies is that no (regularizing) viscosity contribution is added to the fluid-dynamics equations and only diffusivity effects...

Preservation of the angle of reflection when an internal gravity wave hits a sloping boundary generates a focusing mechanism if the angle between the direction of propagation of the incident wave and the horizontal is close to the slope inclination (near-critical reflection). We establish a rigorous analysis of this phenomenon in two space dimensio...

The aim of this work is to make a further step towards the understanding of the near-critical reflection of internal gravity waves from a slope in the more general and realistic context where the size of viscosity $\nu$ and the size of diffusivity $\kappa$ are different. In particular, we provide a systematic characterization of boundary layers (bo...

This article deals with the asymptotic behavior of the two-dimensional inviscid Boussinesq equations with a damping term in the velocity equation. Precisely, we provide the time-decay rates of the smooth solutions to that system. The key ingredient is a careful analysis of the Green kernel of the linearized problem in Fourier space, combined with b...

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...

This article is concerned with the analysis of the one-dimensional compressible Euler equations with a singular pressure law, the so-called hard sphere equation of state. The result is twofold. First, we establish the existence of bounded weak solutions by means of a viscous regularization and refined compensated compactness arguments. Second, we i...

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(...

Gathering together some existing results, we show that the solutions to the one-dimensional Burgers equation converge for long times towards the stationary solutions to the steady Burgers equation, whose Fourier spectrum is not integrable. This is one of the main features of wave turbulence.

Abstract We revisit a method introduced by Tartar for proving global well-posedness of a semilinear hyperbolic system with null quadratic source in one space dimension. A remarka...

We provide a framework to extend the relative entropy method to a class of diffusive relaxation systems with discrete velocities. The methodology is detailed in the toy case of the 1D Jin-Xin model under the diffusive scaling, and provides a direct proof of convergence to the limit parabolic equation in any interval of time, in the regime where the...

We consider a simple example of a partially dissipative hyperbolic system violating the Shizuta-Kawashima condition, i.e. such that some eigendirections do not exhibit dissipation at all. In the space-time resonances framework introduced by Germain, Masmoudi and Shatah, we prove that, when the source term has a Nonresonant Bilinear Form, as propose...

Internal waves describe the (linear) response of an incompressible stably stratified fluid to small perturbations. The inclination of their group velocity with respect to the vertical is completely determined by their frequency. Therefore the reflection on a sloping boundary cannot follow Descartes' laws, and it is expected to be singular if the sl...

The aim of this paper is to prove the strong convergence of the solutions to a vector-BGK model
under the diffusive scaling to the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on the two-dimensional
torus. This result holds in any interval of time [0; T], with T > 0. We also provide the global in
time uniform boundedness of the solutions to the approxima...

We present a rigorous convergence result for the smooth solutions to a singular semilinear hyperbolic approximation, a vector BGK model, to the solutions to the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in Sobolev spaces. Our proof is based on the use of a constant right symmetrizer, weighted with respect to the parameter of the singular pertubation s...

Localization phenomena (sometimes called "flea on the elephant") for the operator L ε = −ε 2 ∆u + p(x)u, p(x) being an unbounded potential, are studied both analytically and numerically, mostly in two space dimensions and within a perturbative framework. Starting from the classical harmonic potential, the effects of various perturbations is retriev...

We provide sharp decay estimates in time in the context of Sobolev spaces, for smooth solutions to the one dimensional Jin-Xin model under the diffusion scaling, which are uniform with respect to the singular parameter of the scaling. This provides convergence to the limit nonlinear parabolic equation both for large time, and for the vanishing sing...

A genuinely two-dimensional discretization of general drift-diffusion (including in-compressible Navier-Stokes) equations is proposed. Its numerical fluxes are derived by computing the radial derivatives of "bubbles" which are deduced from available discrete data by exploiting the stationary Dirichlet-Green function of the convection-diffusion oper...

We propose a model of a density-dependent compressible-incompressible fluid, which is intended as a simplified version of models based on mixture theory as, for instance, those arising in the study of biofilms, tumor growth and vasculogenesis. Though our model is, in some sense, close to the density-dependent incompressible Euler equations, it pres...

In this paper, we consider a class of models for multiphase fluids, in the framework of mixture theory. The considered system, in its more general form, contains both the gradient of a hydrostatic pressure, generated by an incompressibility constraint, and the gradient of a compressible pressure depending on the volume fractions of some of the diff...

Though our compressible-incompressible model seems to be very close to the density-dependent incompressibl...

In this paper, we present an analytical study, in the one space dimensional
case, of the fluid dynamics system proposed in [4] to model the formation of
biofilms. After showing the hyperbolicity of the system, we show that, in a
open neighborhood of the physical parameters, the system is totally dissipative
near its unique non vanishing equilibrium...
