講演: Shock Wave Theory and Boltzmann Equation
Prof. Tai-Ping Liu (Institute of Mathematics, Academia Sinica, Taiwan & Professor Emeritus, Department of Mathematics, Stanford University, USA)
要旨: Over the years, the speaker and Shih-Hsien Yu have tried to generalized the techniques in the shock wave theory for the study of the Boltzmann equation. We soon found out that there are similarities and also essential differences between the two fields. Specific examples will be given to illustrate this. We will start with the construction of the Green’s function for viscous conservation laws and for the Boltzmann equation. We then proceed with examples on nonlinear waves and boundary phenomena.
