Kinetic formulation for vortex vector fields

Prof. Dr. Radu Ignat talk

Speaker invited by: Prof. Dr. Camillo De Lellis

Date: 26.03.15  Time: 18.15 - 19.15  Room: Y27H35/36

We will focus on vortex gradient fields of unit-length. The associated stream function solves the eikonal equation, more precisely it is the distance function to a point. We will prove a kinetic formulation characterizing such vector fields in any dimension.
