Project Description

This project considers the large time structure of the solution to the Cauchy problem for a generalised viscous Burger’s PDE. The theory will be developed via matched asymptotic coordinate expansions. The aim is to identify the coherent structures, and their details, which emerge as robust features in the large time evolution. We anticipate that this will include classical viscous shocks, sonic shocks and expansions. Convergence rates to these structures, and to propagation speeds, will be considered in detail in the large time.

Funding Notes
