Diffusion in fluid flows

A3 01 (Sophus-Lie room)


Enhancement of diffusion and reaction processes by advection is a classical subject that has been extensively studied by both physicists and mathematicians. In this talk I will consider reaction-diffusion on a bounded domain in the presence of a fast incompressible flow. I will also consider convective systems in a bounded domain, in which viscous fluids described by the Stokes system are coupled using the Boussinesq approximation to a reaction-advection-diffusion equation for the temperature.
