On Some Electroconvection Models

Peter Constantin, Tarek Elgindi, Mihaela Ignatova, Vlad Vicol

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider a model of electroconvection motivated by studies of the motion of a two-dimensional annular suspended smectic film under the influence of an electric potential maintained at the boundary by two electrodes. We prove that this electroconvection model has global in time unique smooth solutions.
