### Modelling fluid flows with mean curvature flow

A while ago I was wondering if the displacement of fluid described in this blog post could be modelled with mean curvature flow or some other flow, but when I asked someone in Engineering they replied ...

### Harnack inequality for $F(D^{2}u, Du,x)=f$

I would like to know if there is an harnack inequality for the viscosity solutions of the following pde in the literature: $F(D^{2}u,Du,x)=f \in L^{\infty}(B_{1})$, for a function $u \in C(B_{1})$, ...

### When is a distribution having a finite support actually zero?

Let $D$ be a differential operator with smooth coefficients in $\mathbb{R}^n$. Suppose $E$ is a bounded open set in $\mathbb{R}^n$. Suppose $u$ is a function that is smooth up to the boundary of $E$. ...

### Complex Monge Ampere equal with zero right hand side

Let $(X, \omega)$ be a compact Kaehler manifold, with $K_{X}$ numerically effective. Suppose that $[\zeta] = c_1(K_X)$ and $\int_{X}\zeta^n = 0$. I am interested in solving \begin{equation} (\zeta + i ...

### Modified variational formulation of heat equation

The heat kernel $u:\mathbb{R}^n\times (0,\infty)$ is defined as the solution to $$u_t = \Delta u,$$ subject to certain boundary conditions and can alternatively be described, in variational form, as ...

### Can Schauder's fixed point theorem apply to a metric space?

I am currently reading the existence proof of Mean Field Game equation, which is a coupled system of Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation and Fokker-Planck equation, see page 42 of the paper here. The ...

### How to find the conserved quantities of the Kirchhoff equation?

Consider the Kirchhoff equation, given by $$u_{tt}-\left(1+\int_{\mathbb{R}} u_x^2\;dx\right)u_{xx}+f(u)=0, (x,t) \in \mathbb{R}\times \mathbb{R}_+$$ where $f(u)=u-u^{2r+1}$, for $r \in \mathbb{N}$. ...
Consider the heat equation $\partial_t u - \Delta u = 0, u(0, x) = u_0$ on a complete (non-compact) Riemannian manifold $M$, may be even $\mathbb{R}^n$. I was wondering, what are some known sufficient ...
