Project description
The goal of this project is to develop mathematical theory using variational methods for two nonlinear parabolic PDEs: the total variation flow and the diffusive wave approximation of the shallow water equations. The proposed project is a continuation of the PI's and the research team's successful work in the fields of the nonlinear evolutionary partial differential equations, the calculus of variations and the geometric measure theory related to the functions of bounded variation, and the proposed project requires combining the expertise form all these fields.
