A correction to the paper: ”An existence theorem for compressible viscous fluids”. (English) Zbl 0599.76082

[Concerns the author’s article reviewed above (Zbl 0599.76081)]. The proof of the convergence of the successive approximations is not complete. In fact, we have proved the existence of a subsequence \((\nu_{n_ k},\theta_{n_ k},\rho_{n_ k})\) which converges, but we cannot pass to the limit in (2.4), (2.5) and (2.6), without proving that \((\nu_{n_ k-1},\theta_{n_ k-1},\rho_{n_ k-1})\) also converges to the same limit. This result does not seem easy to be proved, hence we prefer to utilize a slightly different approach. Acutally, we complete the proof of the existence of a solution by a fixed point argument.
