Asymptotic profiles for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations in the whole space. (English) Zbl 1358.35092
In this paper the authors investigate the initial value problem for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations in \(\mathbb R^n\), \(n \geq 3\). They are concerned with the asymptotic properties of strong solutions of the original problem around the constant stationary solution \((\bar \rho, 0)\). In former papers it was shown [S. Kawashima et al., Commun. Math. Phys. 70, 97–124 (1979; Zbl 0449.76053); D. Hoff and K. Zumbrun, Indiana Univ. Math. J. 44, No. 2, 603–676 (1995; Zbl 0842.35076)] that the perturbation of the constant state is time-asymptotic to a solution of the linearized problem. This leads to a first-order asymptotic profile. In the paper under consideration a second-order asymptotic profile of the solution, which is generated by the nonlinear effect, is derived in a very detailed manner.
