On the minimal global attractor of a system of phase field equations

  • V. K. Kalantarov


The unique global solvability of the initial-boundary value problem (1)–(3) is proved for the system of phase field equations (1), (2). It is shown that the problem (1)–(3) generates a continuous compact semigroup Vt, t>0, for which there exists a minimal global B-attractor.
