Low mach number limits and acoustic waves

Ning Jiang, Nader Masmoudi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This review is devoted to the low Mach number limits of the Navier-Stokes equations for the compressible fluids in the context of weak solutions. Acoustic waves play a crucial role in these limits. However, in the torus, whole space, and bounded domain cases, the behaviors of acoustic waves are significantly different.
