The FENE dumbbell model near equilibrium

Fang Hua Lin, Ping Zhang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the global existence of smooth solutions near the equilibrium to a coupled microscopic-macroscopic FENE dumbbell model which arises from the kinetic theory of diluted solutions of polymeric liquids with noninteracting polymer chains.
