This work aims to prove a Hardytype inequality and a trace theorem for a class of function spaces on smooth domains with a nonlocal character. Functions in these spaces are allowed to be as rough as an [Formula: see text]function inside the domain of definition but as smooth as a [Formula: see text]function near the boundary. This feature is captured by a norm that is characterized by a nonlocal interaction kernel defined heterogeneously with a special localization feature on the boundary. Thus, the trace theorem we obtain here can be viewed as an improvement and refinement of the classical trace theorem for fractional Sobolev spaces [Formula: see text]. Similarly, the Hardytype inequalities we establish for functions that vanish on the boundary show that functions in this generalized space have the same decay rate to the boundary as functions in the smaller space [Formula: see text]. The results we prove extend existing results shown in the Hilbert space setting with p = 2. A Poincarétype inequality we establish for the function space under consideration together with the new trace theorem allows formulating and proving wellposedness of a nonlinear nonlocal variational problem with conventional local boundary condition.more » « less

A rational projective plane ([Formula: see text]) is a simply connected, smooth, closed manifold [Formula: see text] such that [Formula: see text]. An open problem is to classify the dimensions at which such a manifold exists. The Barge–Sullivan rational surgery realization theorem provides necessary and sufficient conditions that include the Hattori–Stong integrality conditions on the Pontryagin numbers. In this paper, we simplify these conditions and combine them with the signature equation to give a single quadratic residue equation that determines whether a given dimension supports a [Formula: see text]. We then confirm the existence of a [Formula: see text] in two new dimensions and prove several nonexistence results using factorization of the numerators of the divided Bernoulli numbers. We also resolve the existence question in the Spin case, and we discuss existence results for the more general class of rational projective spaces.more » « less

Abstract In this paper we provide a complete local wellposedness theory for the free boundary relativistic Euler equations with a physical vacuum boundary on a Minkowski background. Specifically, we establish the following results: (i) local wellposedness in the Hadamard sense, i.e., local existence, uniqueness, and continuous dependence on the data; (ii) low regularity solutions: our uniqueness result holds at the level of Lipschitz velocity and density, while our rough solutions, obtained as unique limits of smooth solutions, have regularity only a half derivative above scaling; (iii) stability: our uniqueness in fact follows from a more general result, namely, we show that a certain nonlinear functional that tracks the distance between two solutions (in part by measuring the distance between their respective boundaries) is propagated by the flow; (iv) we establish sharp, essentially scale invariant energy estimates for solutions; (v) a sharp continuation criterion, at the level of scaling, showing that solutions can be continued as long as the velocity is in
and a suitable weighted version of the density is at the same regularity level. Our entire approach is in Eulerian coordinates and relies on the functional framework developed in the companion work of the second and third authors on corresponding non relativistic problem. All our results are valid for a general equation of state$$L^1_t Lip$$ ${L}_{t}^{1}Lip$ ,$$p(\varrho )= \varrho ^\gamma $$ $p\left(\varrho \right)={\varrho}^{\gamma}$ .$$\gamma > 1$$ $\gamma >1$ 
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.$$\dot{\mathcal {B}}^{42\alpha \frac{3}{p}}_{p,r}$$ ${\dot{B}}_{p,r}^{42\alpha \frac{3}{p}}$ 
Abstract We consider two types of the generalized Korteweg–de Vries equation, where the nonlinearity is given with or without absolute values, and, in particular, including the low powers of nonlinearity, an example of which is the Schamel equation. We first prove the local wellposedness of both equations in a weighted subspace of H 1 that includes functions with polynomial decay, extending the result of Linares et al (2019 Commun. Contemp. Math. 21 1850056) to fractional weights. We then investigate solutions numerically, confirming the wellposedness and extending it to a wider class of functions that includes exponential decay. We include a comparison of solutions to both types of equations, in particular, we investigate soliton resolution for the positive and negative data with different decay rates. Finally, we study the interaction of various solitary waves in both models, showing the formation of solitons, dispersive radiation and even breathers, all of which are easier to track in nonlinearities with lower power.more » « less
