On large-time behavior of solutions to the compressible Navier-Stokes equations in the half space in \(\mathbb R^3\). (English) Zbl 1016.35055
Summary: The Navier-Stokes equation for a compressible viscous fluid is considered on the half space in \(\mathbb R^3\) under the zero-Dirichlet boundary condition for the momentum with initial data near an arbitrarily given equilibrium of positive constant density and zero momentum. Time decay properties in \(L^2\) norms for solutions of the linearized problem are investigated to obtain the rate of convergence in \(L^2\) norms of solutions to the equilibrium when initial data are sufficiently close to the equilibrium in \(H^3\cap L^1\). Some lower bounds are derived for solutions to the linearized problem, one of which indicates a nonlinear phenomenon not appearing in the case of the Cauchy problem on the whole space.
