Energy dissipation for weak solutions of incompressible liquid crystal flows
Shanshan Guo Zhong Tan
In this paper, we are concerned with the simplified Ericksen-Leslie system (1)--(3), modeling the flow of nematic liquid crystals for any initial and boundary (or Cauchy) data $(u_0, d_0)\in {\bf H}\times H^1(\Omega, \mathbb{S}^2)$, with $d_0(\Omega)\subset\mathbb{S}^2_+$. We define a dissipation term $D(u,d)$ that stems from an eventual lack of smoothness in the solutions, and then obtain a local equation of energy for weak solutions of liquid crystals in dimensions three. As a consequence, we consider the 2D case and obtain $D(u,d)=0$.

Optimal partial regularity results for nonlinear elliptic systems in Carnot groups
Shuhong Chen Zhong Tan
In this paper, we consider partial regularity for weak solutions of second-order nonlinear elliptic systems in Carnot groups. By the method of A-harmonic approximation, we establish optimal interior partial regularity of weak solutions to systems under controllable growth conditions with sub-quadratic growth in Carnot groups.

Optimal interior partial regularity for nonlinear elliptic systems
Shuhong Chen Zhong Tan
We consider interior regularity for weak solutions of nonlinear elliptic systems with subquadratic under controllable growth condition. By $\mathcal{A}$-harmonic approximation technique, we obtain a general criterion for a weak solution to be regular in the neighborhood of a given point. In particularly, the regular result is optimal.

Higher integrability of weak solution of a nonlinear problem arising in the electrorheological fluids
Zhong Tan Jianfeng Zhou
In this paper, we study the Dirichlet problem arising in the electrorheological fluids \begin{eqnarray} \begin{cases} -{\rm div}\ a(x,Du)=k(u^{\gamma-1}-u^{\beta-1}) & x\in \Omega, \\ u=0 & x\in \partial \Omega, \end{cases} \end{eqnarray} where $\Omega$ is a bounded domain in $R^n$ and ${\rm div}\ a(x,Du)$ is a $p(x)$-Laplace type operator with $1<\beta<\gamma<\inf_{x\in \Omega} p(x)$, $p(x)\in(1,2]$. By establish a reversed Hölder inequality, we show that for any suitable $\gamma,\beta$, the weak solution of previous equation has bounded $p(x)$ energy satisfies $|Du|^{p(x)}\in L_{\text{loc}}^{\delta}$ with some $\delta>1$.

Time decay of solutions to the compressible Euler equations with damping
Qing Chen Zhong Tan
We consider the time decay rates of the solution to the Cauchy problem for the compressible Euler equations with damping. We prove the optimal decay rates of the solution as well as its higher-order spatial derivatives. The damping effect on the time decay estimates of the solution is studied in details.

The existence and asymptotic behavior of the evolution p-Laplacian equations with strong nonlinear sources
Zhong Tan Zheng-An Yao
In this paper we consider the existence, nonexistence and the asymptotic behavior of the global solutions of the quasilinear parabolic equation of the following form:

$u_t-\Delta_pu=|u|^{q-2}u, \quad (x,t)\in\Omega\times (0,T),$

$u(x,t)=0,\quad (x,t)\in\partial\Omega\times (0,T), $

$ u(x,0)=u_0(x), \quad u_0(x)\geq 0, u_0(x)$ ≠ $0, $

where $\Omega$ is a smooth bounded domain in $R^N(N\geq 3)$, $\Delta_pu=$ div$(|\nabla u|^{p-2}\nabla u )$, $\frac{2N}{N+2}$ < $p$ < $N$, $q=p^\star=\frac{pN}{N-p}$ is the critical Sobolev exponent. In particular, we employ the concentration-compactness principle to prove that the global solutions with the initial data in "stable set" converge strongly to zero in $W_0^{1,p}(\Omega)$.

Global existence in critical spaces for the compressible magnetohydrodynamic equations
Qing Chen Zhong Tan
In this paper, we are concerned with the global existence and uniqueness of the strong solutions to the compressible Magnetohydrodynamic equations in $\mathbb{R}^N(N\ge3)$. Under the condition that the initial data are close to an equilibrium state with constant density, temperature and magnetic field, we prove the global existence and uniqueness of a solution in a functional setting invariant by the scaling of the associated equations.

Asymptotic behavior of the compressible non-isentropic Navier-Stokes-Maxwell system in $\mathbb{R}^3$
Zhong Tan Leilei Tong

The compressible non-isentropic Navier-Stokes-Maxwell system is investigated in $\mathbb{R}^3$ and the global existence and large time behavior of solutions are established by pure energy method provided the initial perturbation around a constant state is small enough. We first construct the global unique solution under the assumption that the $H^3$ norm of the initial data is small, but the higher order derivatives can be arbitrarily large. If further the initial data belongs to $\dot{H}^{-s}$ ($0≤ s<3/2$) or $\dot{B}_{2, ∞}^{-s}$ ($0< s≤3/2$), by a regularity interpolation trick, we obtain the various decay rates of the solution and its higher order derivatives. As an immediate byproduct, the $L^p$-$L^2$ $(1≤ p≤ 2)$ type of the decay rates follows without requiring that the $L^p$ norm of initial data is small.

Asymptotic stability of stationary solutions for magnetohydrodynamic equations
Zhong Tan Leilei Tong

In this paper, we are concerned with the compressible magnetohydrodynamic equations with Coulomb force in three-dimensional space. We show the asymptotic stability of solutions to the Cauchy problem near the non-constant equilibrium state provided that the initial perturbation is sufficiently small. Moreover, the convergence rates are obtained by combining the linear Lp-Lq decay estimates and the higher-order energy estimates.

Large-time behavior of the full compressible Euler-Poisson system without the temperature damping
Zhong Tan Yong Wang Fanhui Xu
We study the three-dimensional full compressible Euler-Poisson system without the temperature damping. Using a general energy method, we prove the optimal decay rates of the solutions and their higher order derivatives. We show that the optimal decay rates is algebraic but not exponential since the absence of temperature damping.
