Dissipativity and Gevrey regularity of a Smoluchowski equation Academic Article uri icon


  • We investigate a Smoluchowski equation (a nonlinear Fokker-Planck equation on the unit sphere), which arises in modeling of colloidal suspensions. We prove the dissipativity of the equation in 2D and 3D, in certain Gevrey classes of analytic functions. Indiana University Mathematics Journal ©.
