Abstract This paper is concerned with two classes of cubic quasilinear equations, which can be derived as asymptotic models from shallowwater approximation to the 2D incompressible Euler equations. One class of the models has homogeneous cubic nonlinearity and includes the integrable modified Camassa–Holm (mCH) equation and Novikov equation, and the other class encompasses both quadratic and cubic nonlinearities. It is demonstrated here that both these models possess localized peaked solutions. By constructing a Lyapunov function, these peaked waves are shown to be dynamically stable under small perturbations in the natural energy space $H^1$, without restriction on the sign of the momentum density. In particular, for the homogeneous cubic nonlinear model, we are able to further incorporate a higherorder conservation law to conclude orbital stability in $H^1\cap W^{1,4}$. Our analysis is based on a strong use of the conservation laws, the introduction of certain auxiliary functions, and a refined continuity argument.more » « less

null (Ed.)Recent equations of motion for the large deflections of a cantilevered elastic beam are analyzed. In the traditional theory of beam (and plate) large deflections, nonlinear restoring forces are due to the effect of stretching on bending; for an inextensible cantilever, the enforcement of arclength preservation leads to quasilinear stiffness effects and inertial effects that are both nonlinear and nonlocal. For this model, smooth solutions are constructed via a spectral Galerkin approach. Additional compactness is needed to pass to the limit, and this is obtained through a complex procession of higher energy estimates. Uniqueness is obtained through a nontrivial decomposition of the nonlinearity. The confounding effects of nonlinear inertia are overcome via the addition of structural (Kelvin–Voigt) damping to the equations of motion. Local wellposedness of smooth solutions is shown first in the absence of nonlinear inertial effects, and then shown with these inertial effects present, taking into account structural damping. With damping in force, globalintime, strong wellposedness result is obtained by achieving exponential decay for small data.more » « less

We prove that solutions to linear wave equations in a subextremal Kerr–de Sitter space time have asymptotic expansions in quasinormal modes up to a decay order given by the normally hyperbolic trapping, extending the result of the second named author (2013). The main novelties are a different way of obtaining a Fredholm setup that defines the quasinormal modes and a new analysis of the trapping of lightlike geodesics in the Kerr–de Sitter spacetime, both of which apply in the full subextremal range. In particular, this reduces the question of decay for solutions to wave equations to the question of mode stability.more » « less

Abstract The wellposedness of stochastic Navier–Stokes equations with various noises is a hot topic in the area of stochastic partial differential equations. Recently, the consideration of stochastic Navier–Stokes equations involving fractional Laplacian has received more and more attention. Due to the scalinginvariant property of the fractional stochastic equations concerned, it is natural and also very important to study the wellposedness of stochastic fractional Navier–Stokes equations in the associated critical Fourier–Besov spaces. In this paper, we are concerned with the threedimensional stochastic fractional Navier–Stokes equation driven by multiplicative noise. We aim to establish the wellposedness of solutions of the concerned equation. To this end, by utilising the Fourier localisation technique, we first establish the local existence and uniqueness of the solutions in the critical Fourier–Besov space
. Then, under the condition that the initial date is sufficiently small, we show the global existence of the solutions in the probabilistic sense.$$\dot{\mathcal {B}}^{42\alpha \frac{3}{p}}_{p,r}$$ ${\dot{B}}_{p,r}^{42\alpha \frac{3}{p}}$ 
We investigate the wellposedness in the generalized Hartree equation [Formula: see text], [Formula: see text], [Formula: see text], for low powers of nonlinearity, [Formula: see text]. We establish the local wellposedness for a class of data in weighted Sobolev spaces, following ideas of Cazenave and Naumkin, Local existence, global existence, and scattering for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, Comm. Contemp. Math. 19(2) (2017) 1650038. This crucially relies on the boundedness of the Riesz transform in weighted Lebesgue spaces. As a consequence, we obtain a class of data that exists globally, moreover, scatters in positive time. Furthermore, in the focusing case in the [Formula: see text]supercritical setting we obtain a subset of locally wellposed data with positive energy, which blows up in finite time.more » « less
