Decay rates of the compressible NavierStokesKorteweg equations with potential forces
Wenjun Wang  College of Science, University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, Shanghai 200093, China (email) Abstract: In this paper, the compressible NavierStokesKorteweg equations with a potential external force is considered in $\mathbb{R}^3$. Under the smallness assumption on both the external force and the initial perturbation of the stationary solution in some Sobolev spaces, we establish the existence theory of global solutions to the stationary profile. What's more, when the initial perturbation is bounded in $L^p$norm with $1\leq p<2$, the optimal time decay rates of the solution in $L^q$norm with $2\leq q\leq 6$ and its first order derivative in $L^2$norm are shown. On the other hand, when the $\dot{H}^{s}$ norm $(s\in(0,\frac{3}{2}])$ of the perturbation is finite, we obtain the optimal time decay rates of the solution and its first order derivative in $L^2$norm.
Keywords: NavierStokesKorteweg equations, potential force, global existence, optimal convergence rates, $L^p$$L^q$ estimate.
