Achleitner, F. (2022, February 15). Short- and long-time behavior in (hypo)coercive ODE-systems and kinetic partial differential equations [Conference Presentation]. One-Parameter Semigroups of Operators (OPSO), Nischni Nowgorod, Russian Federation (the).
We will discuss hypocoercivity on the level of ODEs and devise a new way to construct strict Lyapunov functionals: Systems of ODEs dx/dt = Ax with semi-dissipative matrix A (i.e. the Hermitian part of matrix A is negative semi-definite) are Lyapunov stable but not necessarily asymptotically stable. There exist many equivalent conditions, to decide if the ODE system is asymptotically stable or not. Some conditions allow to construct a strict Lyapunov functional in a natural way. We will review these classical conditions/approaches and identify a "hypocoercivity index" which e.g. characterizes the short-time asymptotics of the propagator norm for semi-dissipative ODEs. Finally, we apply these results to study the long-time behavior of (hypocoercive) nonlinear BGK-type model with constant collision frequency, and (kinetic) Fokker-Planck equations. In particular, we will compare our strict Lyapunov functionals for the linear(ized) kinetic equations with other classical approaches.
