The low Mach number limit for the full Navier-Stokes-Fourier system. (English) Zbl 1147.76049

Summary: We study the low Mach number asymptotic limit for solutions to the full Navier-Stokes–Stokes-Fourier system, supplemented with ill-prepared data and considered on an arbitrary time interval. Convergence towards incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is shown.
