MORE: talk by Vít Průša

The talk On the role of thermodynamics in the stability analysis of motion of viscoelastic rate type fluids, by Vít Průša will be held on Monday March 6, 2017 at 9:00 in room K4.


Analysis of the stability of a solution to a system of nonlinear partial differential equations is a quite challenging task. I will show that thermodynamics can be helpful in the stability analysis. In particular I will discuss the question of the stability of the rest state (equilibrium) and the stability of a steady flow (non-equilibrium state) of a viscoelastic rate type fluid.
