On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids

  • Joohuyn La (Princeton University)
A3 01 (Sophus-Lie room)


In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.
