On The Boltzmann Equation For LongRange Interactions
 Comm. Pure Appl. Math
, 2002
"... . We study the Boltzmann equation without Grad's angular cutoff assumption. We introduce a suitable renormalized formulation, which allows the crosssection to be singular in both the angular and the relative velocity variables.

. We study the Boltzmann equation without Grad's angular cutoff assumption. We introduce a suitable renormalized formulation, which allows the crosssection to be singular in both the angular and the relative velocity variables. This situation occurs as soon as one is interested in longrange interactions. Together with several new estimates, this enables us to prove existence of weak solutions, and to give a proof of a conjecture by Lions (appearance of strong compactness) under general, fully realistic assumptions. Contents 1. Introduction 1 2. Assumptions on the crosssection and main results 12 3. Renormalized formulation 17 4. Strong compactness and passage to the limit 27 5. Does a borderline kinetic singularity induce compactness ? 34 Appendix : On the defect measure 36 References 41 1. Introduction Since the work of DiPerna and Lions [23] on the Cauchy problem for the Boltzmann equation, ten years ago, it has been a wellknown open problem to extend their theory to physicall...

We introduce a new concept of solution for the Dirichlet problem for the total variational flow named entropy solution. Using Kruzhkov's method of doubling variables both in space and in time we prove uniqueness and a comparison principle in L¹ for entropy solutions. To prove the existence we use the nonlinear semigroup theory and we show that when the initial and boundary data are nonnegative the semigroup solutions are strong solutions.

We prove existence and uniqueness of solutions for the Dirichlet problem for quasilinear parabolic equations in divergent form for which the energy functional has linear growth. A tipical example of energy functional we consider is the one given by the nonparametric area integrand f(x; ) = p 1 + kk 2 , which corresponds with the timedependent minimal surface equation. We also study the asimptotic behavoiur of the solutions.

A threedimensional thermoviscoelastic system derived from the balance laws of momentum and energy is considered. To describe structural phase transitions in solids, the stored energy function is not assumed to be convex as a function of the deformation gradient. A novel feature for multidimensional, nonconvex, and nonisothermal problems is that no regularizing higher order terms are introduced. The mechanical dissipation is not linearized. We prove existence global in time. The approach is based on a fixedpoint argument using an implicit time discretization and the theory of renormalized solutions for parabolic equations with L1 data. 1.
