On a salt fingers model

G. M. Coclite, Francesco Paparella, S. F. Pellegrino

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We consider the model introduced in Paparella and von Hardenberg (2014), that consists in the homogeneous boundary value problem for a system of nonlinear degenerate parabolic equations. We prove the existence of global weak solutions and discuss their stability and asymptotic properties.
