Abstract

For the isentropic compressible fluids in one-space dimension, we prove that the Navier-Stokes equations with density-dependent viscosity have neither forward nor backward self-similar strong solutions with finite kinetic energy. Moreover, we obtain the same result for the nonisentropic compressible gas flow, that is, for the fluid dynamics of the Navier-Stokes equations coupled with a transport equation of entropy. These results generalize those in Guo and Jiang's work (2006) where the one-dimensional compressible fluids with constant viscosity are considered.
