Existence of smooth solutions to coupled chemotaxis-fluid equations

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider a system coupling the parabolic-parabolic chemotaxis equations to the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in spatial dimensions two and three. We establish the local existence of regular solutions and present some blow-up criterions. For two dimensional chemotaxis-Navier-Stokes equations, regular solutions constructed locally in time are, in reality, extended globally under some assumptions pertinent to experimental observations in [21] on the consumption rate and chemotactic sensitivity. We also show the existence of global weak solutions in spatially three dimensions with stronger restriction on the consumption rate and chemotactic sensitivity.
