We consider the existence of a solution for the stationary Navier-Stokes equations describing an inhomogeneous incompressible fluid in a two dimensional unbounded Y-shaped domain. We show the existence of a weak solution such that the density and velocity of the fluid tend to densities and parallel flows, respectively, prescribed at some ‘ends’ of the domain. We allow prescribed densities at different ends to have distinct values. In fact, we obtain the density in the L$\infty$-space.
In this paper we study a class of plane self-affine lattice tiles that are defined using polyominoes. In particular, we characterize which of these tiles are homeomorphic to a closed disk. It turns out that their topological structure depends very sensitively on their defining parameters.
In order to achieve our results we use an algorithm of Scheicher and the second author which allows to determine neighbors of tiles in a systematic way as well as a criterion of Bandt and Wang, with that we can check disk-likeness of a self-affine tile by analyzing the set of its neighbors.
