Compressible Navier-Stokes equations with heterogeneous pressure laws Jabin, Pierre-Emmanuel


We prove the existence of global weak solutions à la Leray for compressible Navier-Stokes equations with a pressure law which depends on the density and on time and space variables t and x. The assumptions on the pressure contain only locally Lipschitz assumption with respect to the density variable and some hypothesis with respect to the extra time and space variables. It may be seen as a first step to consider heat-conducting Navier-Stokes equations with physical laws such as the truncated virial assumption. The paper focuses on the construction of approximate solutions through a new regularized and fixed point procedure and on the weak stability process taking advantage of the new method introduced by the two first authors with a careful study of an appropriate regularized quantity linked to the pressure.
This is a joint work with D. Bresch and F. Wang.
