Analyzing the dynamics of the forced Burgers equation

Received01 Apr 1998
Revised01 Oct 1999


We study numerically the long-time dynamics of a system of reaction-diffusion equations that arise from the viscous forced Burgers equation (ut+uuxvuxx=F). A nonlinear transformation introduced by Kwak is used to embed the scalar Burgers equation into a system of reaction diffusion equations. The Kwak transformation is used to determine the existence of an inertial manifold for the 2-D Navier-Stokes equation. We show analytically as well as numerically that the two systems have a similar, long-time dynamical, behavior for large viscosity v.
