Large-time behavior of periodic solutions to fractal Burgers equation with large initial data

  • 83 Accesses

  • 5 Citations


The asymptotic behavior of periodic solutions to fractal nonlinear Burgers equation is considered and the initial data are allowed to be arbitrarily large. The exponential decay estimates of the solutions are obtained for the power of Laplacian α ∈ [1/2, 1).
