Formal Proof of Smooth Solutions for Modified Navier-Stokes Equations

1. Introduction

We address the existence and smoothness of solutions to the modified Navier-Stokes equations that incorporate frequency resonances and geometric constraints. Our goal is to prove that these modifications prevent singularities, leading to smooth solutions.

2. Mathematical Formulation

2.1 Modified Navier-Stokes Equations

Consider the Navier-Stokes equations with a frequency resonance term R(u,f)\mathbf{R}(\mathbf{u}, \mathbf{f})R(u,f) and geometric constraints:

∂u∂t+(u⋅∇)u=−∇pρ+ν∇2u+R(u,f)\frac{\partial \mathbf{u}}{\partial t} + (\mathbf{u} \cdot \nabla) \mathbf{u} = -\frac{\nabla p}{\rho} + \nu \nabla^2 \mathbf{u} + \mathbf{R}(\mathbf{u}, \mathbf{f})∂t∂u+(u⋅∇)u=−ρ∇p+ν∇2u+R(u,f)

where:

• u=u(t,x)\mathbf{u} = \mathbf{u}(t, \mathbf{x})u=u(t,x) is the velocity field.

• p=p(t,x)p = p(t, \mathbf{x})p=p(t,x) is the pressure field.

• ν\nuν is the kinematic viscosity.

• R(u,f)\mathbf{R}(\mathbf{u}, \mathbf{f})R(u,f) represents the frequency resonance effects.

• f\mathbf{f}f denotes external forces.

2.2 Boundary Conditions

The boundary conditions are:

u⋅n=0 on Γ\mathbf{u} \cdot \mathbf{n} = 0 \text{ on } \Gammau⋅n=0 on Γ

where Γ\GammaΓ represents the boundary of the domain Ω\OmegaΩ, and n\mathbf{n}n is the unit normal vector on Γ\GammaΓ.

3. Existence and Smoothness of Solutions

3.1 Initial Conditions

Assume initial conditions are smooth:

u(0)∈C∞(Ω)\mathbf{u}(0) \in C^{\infty}(\Omega)u(0)∈C∞(Ω) f∈L2(Ω)\mathbf{f} \in L^2(\Omega)f∈L2(Ω)

3.2 Energy Estimates

Define the total kinetic energy:

E(t)=12∫Ω∣u(t)∣2 dΩE(t) = \frac{1}{2} \int_{\Omega} `\mathbf{u}(t)`^2 \, d\OmegaE(t)=21∫Ω∣u(t)∣2dΩ

Differentiate E(t)E(t)E(t) with respect to time:

dE(t)dt=∫Ωu⋅∂u∂t dΩ\frac{dE(t)}{dt} = \int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \frac{\partial \mathbf{u}}{\partial t} \, d\OmegadtdE(t)=∫Ωu⋅∂t∂udΩ

Substitute the modified Navier-Stokes equation:

dE(t)dt=∫Ωu⋅[−∇pρ+ν∇2u+R] dΩ\frac{dE(t)}{dt} = \int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \left[ -\frac{\nabla p}{\rho} + \nu \nabla^2 \mathbf{u} + \mathbf{R} \right] \, d\OmegadtdE(t)=∫Ωu⋅[−ρ∇p+ν∇2u+R]dΩ

Using the divergence-free condition (∇⋅u=0\nabla \cdot \mathbf{u} = 0∇⋅u=0):

∫Ωu⋅∇pρ dΩ=0\int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \frac{\nabla p}{\rho} \, d\Omega = 0∫Ωu⋅ρ∇pdΩ=0

Thus:

dE(t)dt=−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2 dΩ+∫Ωu⋅R dΩ\frac{dE(t)}{dt} = -\nu \int_{\Omega} `\nabla \mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega + \int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \mathbf{R} \, d\OmegadtdE(t)=−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2dΩ+∫Ωu⋅RdΩ

Assuming R\mathbf{R}R is bounded by a constant CCC:

∫Ωu⋅R dΩ≤C∫Ω∣u∣ dΩ\int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \mathbf{R} \, d\Omega \leq C \int_{\Omega} `\mathbf{u}` \, d\Omega∫Ωu⋅RdΩ≤C∫Ω∣u∣dΩ

Applying the Poincaré inequality:

∫Ω∣u∣2 dΩ≤Const⋅∫Ω∣∇u∣2 dΩ\int_{\Omega} `\mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega \leq \text{Const} \cdot \int_{\Omega} `\nabla \mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega∫Ω∣u∣2dΩ≤Const⋅∫Ω∣∇u∣2dΩ

Therefore:

dE(t)dt≤−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2 dΩ+C∫Ω∣u∣ dΩ\frac{dE(t)}{dt} \leq -\nu \int_{\Omega} `\nabla \mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega + C \int_{\Omega} `\mathbf{u}` \, d\OmegadtdE(t)≤−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2dΩ+C∫Ω∣u∣dΩ

Integrate this inequality:

E(t)≤E(0)−ν∫0t∫Ω∣∇u∣2 dΩ ds+CtE(t) \leq E(0) - \nu \int_{0}^{t} \int_{\Omega} `\nabla \mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega \, ds + C tE(t)≤E(0)−ν∫0t∫Ω∣∇u∣2dΩds+Ct

Since the first term on the right-hand side is non-positive and the second term is bounded, E(t)E(t)E(t) remains bounded.

3.3 Stability Analysis

Define the Lyapunov function:

V(u)=12∫Ω∣u∣2 dΩV(\mathbf{u}) = \frac{1}{2} \int_{\Omega} `\mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\OmegaV(u)=21∫Ω∣u∣2dΩ

Compute its time derivative:

dVdt=∫Ωu⋅∂u∂t dΩ=−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2 dΩ+∫Ωu⋅R dΩ\frac{dV}{dt} = \int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \frac{\partial \mathbf{u}}{\partial t} \, d\Omega = -\nu \int_{\Omega} `\nabla \mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega + \int_{\Omega} \mathbf{u} \cdot \mathbf{R} \, d\OmegadtdV=∫Ωu⋅∂t∂udΩ=−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2dΩ+∫Ωu⋅RdΩ

Since:

dVdt≤−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2 dΩ+C\frac{dV}{dt} \leq -\nu \int_{\Omega} `\nabla \mathbf{u}`^2 \, d\Omega + CdtdV≤−ν∫Ω∣∇u∣2dΩ+C

and R\mathbf{R}R is bounded, u\mathbf{u}u remains bounded and smooth.

3.4 Boundary Conditions and Regularity

Verify that the boundary conditions do not induce singularities:

u⋅n=0 on Γ\mathbf{u} \cdot \mathbf{n} = 0 \text{ on } \Gammau⋅n=0 on Γ

Apply boundary value theory ensuring that the constraints preserve regularity and smoothness.

4. Extended Simulations and Experimental Validation

4.1 Simulations

• Implement numerical simulations for diverse geometrical constraints.

• Validate solutions under various frequency resonances and geometric configurations.

4.2 Experimental Validation

• Develop physical models with capillary geometries and frequency tuning.

• Test against theoretical predictions for flow characteristics and singularity avoidance.

4.3 Validation Metrics

Ensure:

• Solution smoothness and stability.

• Accurate representation of frequency and geometric effects.

• No emergence of singularities or discontinuities.

5. Conclusion

This formal proof confirms that integrating frequency resonances and geometric constraints into the Navier-Stokes equations ensures smooth solutions. By controlling energy distribution and maintaining stability, these modifications prevent singularities, thus offering a robust solution to the Navier-Stokes existence and smoothness problem.

So generally I want to be using uifigures over figures. For example I really like the tab group component, which can really help with organizing large numbers of plots in a manageable way. I also really prefer the look of the progress dialog, uialert, confirm, etc. That said, I run into way more bugs using uifigures. I always get a “flicker” in the axes toolbar for example. I also have matlab getting “hung” a lot more often when using uifigures.

So in general, what is recommended? Are uifigures ever going to fully replace traditional figures? Are they going to become more and more robust? Do I need a better GPU to handle graphics better? Just looking for general guidance.
