Global Classical Solutions Close to Equilibrium to the Vlasov Euler-Fokker-Planck System

Abstract

We are concerned with the global well-posedness of a two-phase flow system arising in the modelling of fluid-particle interactions. This system consists of the Vlasov-Fokker-Planck equation for the dispersed phase (particles) coupled to the incompressible Euler equations for a dense phase (fluid) through the friction forcing. Global existence of classical solutions to the Cauchy problem in the whole space is established when initial data is a small smooth perturbation of a constant equilibrium state, and moreover an algebraic rate of convergence of solutions toward equilibrium is obtained under additional conditions on initial data. The proof is based on the macro-micro decomposition and Kawashima's hyperbolic-parabolic dissipation argument. This result is generalized to the periodic case, when particles are in the torus, improving the rate of convergence to exponential.
