Publication# Regularity of solutions for a fourth-order elliptic system via Conservation law

Abstract

In this paper, we obtain interior Holder continuity for solutions of the fourth-order elliptic system Delta(2)u = Delta(V center dot del u) + div(w del u) + W center dot del u formulated by Lamm and Riviere [Comm. Partial Differential Equations 33 (2008) 245-262]. Boundary continuity is also obtained under a standard Dirichlet or Navier boundary condition. We also use conservation law to establish a weak compactness result which generalizes a result of Riviere for the second-order problem.

Boundary layer

In physics and fluid mechanics, a boundary layer is the thin layer of fluid in the immediate vicinity of a bounding surface formed by the fluid flowing along the surface. The fluid's interaction with the wall induces a no-slip boundary condition (zero velocity at the wall). The flow velocity then monotonically increases above the surface until it returns to the bulk flow velocity. The thin layer consisting of fluid whose velocity has not yet returned to the bulk flow velocity is called the velocity boundary layer.

Conservation law

In physics, a conservation law states that a particular measurable property of an isolated physical system does not change as the system evolves over time. Exact conservation laws include conservation of mass-energy, conservation of linear momentum, conservation of angular momentum, and conservation of electric charge. There are also many approximate conservation laws, which apply to such quantities as mass, parity, lepton number, baryon number, strangeness, hypercharge, etc.

Conservation of mass

In physics and chemistry, the law of conservation of mass or principle of mass conservation states that for any system closed to all transfers of matter and energy, the mass of the system must remain constant over time, as the system's mass cannot change, so the quantity can neither be added nor be removed. Therefore, the quantity of mass is conserved over time. The law implies that mass can neither be created nor destroyed, although it may be rearranged in space, or the entities associated with it may be changed in form.
