Generalized Burgers Equation with Measure Data

Bui An TON

Full-text: Open access


A generalized Burgers equation with measure data is studied. The existence of a weak solution of an initial boundary-value problem in a bounded cylindrical domain, is established. Time-periodic solutions are shown to exist and an optimization problem related to an inverse problem is considered.
