The Weizmann Institute of Science Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science Mathematical Analysis and Applications Seminar Feinberg Graduate School, Room B on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 11:00 - noon Note the unusual location Marshall Slemrod will speak on Chapman-Enskog implies Viscosity-Capillarity Abstract: I will review the work of A.Gorban and I.Karlin, Annals of Physics (Leipzig),2002. This work seems to have been unrecognized in much of the prevailing mathematics literatures. The advantage of the Gorban-Karlin work is that it quickly gets to many of the issues associated with the Chapman-Enskog expansion with very little of the tedious computations. For analysts it provides a very nice and exact representation of the extra stress in the equations of gas dynamics in the form of a non-local operator and shows that the extra stress for isothermal motion has additional capillarity component in addition to the traditional viscous term. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math Net-2 (TECHMATH2) Editor: Michael Cwikel <techm@math.technion.ac.il> Announcement from: Yaeli Malka <yaeli.malka@weizmann.ac.il>
