Solvability and sliding mode control for the viscous Cahn–Hilliard system with a possibly singular potential

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Related Papers Cited by
  • In the present contribution we study a viscous Cahn–Hilliard system where a further leading term in the expression for the chemical potential $ \mu $ is present. This term consists of a subdifferential operator $ S $ in $ L^2(\Omega) $ (where $ \Omega $ is the domain where the evolution takes place) acting on the difference of the phase variable $ \varphi $ and a given state $ {\varphi^*} $, which is prescribed and may depend on space and time. We prove existence and continuous dependence results in case of both homogeneous Neumann and Dirichlet boundary conditions for the chemical potential $ \mu $. Next, by assuming that $ S = \rho\;{\rm{sign}} $, a multiple of the $ \;{\rm{sign}} $ operator, and for smoother data, we first show regularity results. Then, in the case of Dirichlet boundary conditions for $ \mu $ and under suitable conditions on $ \rho $ and $ \Omega $, we also prove the sliding mode property, that is, that $ \varphi $ is forced to join the evolution of $ {\varphi^*} $ in some time $ T^* $ lower than the given final time $ T $. We point out that all our results hold true for a very general and possibly singular multi-well potential acting on $ \varphi $.
