Convergence to steady states of solutions of the Cahn-Hilliard and Caginalp equations with dynamic boundary conditions. (English) Zbl 1107.35058
Summary: We consider a solution of the Cahn-Hilliard equation or an associated Caginalp problem with dynamic boundary condition in the case of a general potential and prove that under some conditions on the potential it converges, as \(t\to \infty\), to a stationary solution. The main tool will be the Łojasiewicz-Simon inequality for the underlying energy functional.
