Finite-time condensation in 1D Fokker-Planck model for bosons. (arXiv:1901.11098v1 [math.AP])

We consider a one-dimensional analogue of the three-dimensional Fokker-Planck equation for bosons. The latter is still only partially understood, and, in particular, the physically relevant question of whether this equation has solutions which form a Bose-Einstein condensate has remained unanswered. After a change of variables, we establish global-in-time existence and uniqueness for our 1D model (and generalisations thereof) using the concept of viscosity solutions. We show that such solutions enjoy good regularity properties, which guarantee that in the original variables blow-up can only occur at the origin and with a fixed spatial profile, up to leading order, following a power law linked to the steady states of the equation. This enables us to extend entropy methods beyond the first blow-up time. As a consequence, in the mass-supercritical case, solutions will blow up in $L^\infty$ in finite time and - understood in an extended, measure-valued sense - they will eventually have a c查看全文
