Sala Riunioni (Dip. Matematica).
In this talk I will present some results concerning the analysis of finite energy weak solutions of the Navier-Stokes-Korteweg equations, which model the dynamic of a viscous compressible fluid with diffuse interface. A general theory of global existence is still missing, however for some particular cases of physical interest I will present results regarding the global existence and the compactness of finite energy weak solutions. The talk is based on a series of joint works with Paolo Antonelli (GSSI – Gran Sasso Science Institute, L’Aquila)
