Global existence and long-time behavior of entropy weak solutions to a quasilinear hyperbolic blood flow model

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper is concerned with an initial-boundary value problem on bounded domains for a one dimensional quasilinear hyperbolic model of blood flow with viscous damping. It is shown that $L^\infty$ entropy weak solutions exist globally in time when the initial data are large, rough and contains vacuum states. Furthermore, based on entropy principle and the theory of divergence measure field, it is shown that any $L^\infty$ entropy weak solution converges to a constant equilibrium state exponentially fast as time goes to infinity. The physiological relevance of the theoretical results obtained in this paper is demonstrated.
