Margaret Beck : Nonlinear stability of time-periodic viscous shocks



In order to understand the nonlinear stability of many types of time-periodic traveling waves on unbounded domains, one must overcome two main difficulties: the presence of zero eigenvalues that are embedded in the continuous spectrum and the time-periodicity of the associated linear operator. I will outline these issues and show how they can be overcome in the context of time-periodic Lax shocks in systems of viscous conservation laws. The method involves the development of a contour integral representation of the linear evolution, similar to that of a strongly continuous semigroup, and detailed pointwise estimates on the resultant Greens function, which are sufficient for proving nonlinear stability under the necessary assumption of spectral stability.
