On a nonhomogeneous bi-layer shallow-water problem: an existence theorem

María Luz Muñoz-Ruiz

Full-text: Open access


In this paper we prove the existence of a solution for a nonhomogeneous bi-layer shallow-water model in depth-mean velocity formulation. In [7] the homogeneous case was studied. The main difficulties in the nonhomogeneous case arise from the treatment of the boundary terms.
