Global existence and decay estimate of solution to one dimensional convection-diffusion equation



We study the global existence of solution to one dimensional convection-diffusion equation. Through constructing a Cauchy sequence in a Banach space, we get the local existence of solution to the equation. Based on the global bounds of the solution, we extend the local one to a global one that decays in H l space.

Key words
