Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The convergence from a sequence of the unique global solutions to the Cauchy problems for compressible viscoelastic fluids to a unique global solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations without external forces is studied for a wide class of initial data as the Mach number and the elastic coefficient go to zero simultaneously. The proofs are based on a set of conservation laws and a list of estimates which are uniform in the scaling parameter as well as a dispersive estimate for the wave equation.
