Subproblems Individually

  • Ulrich Wilbrandt
Part of the Advances in Mathematical Fluid Mechanics book series (AMFM)


In this section the existence and uniqueness of solutions of the involved subproblems are proved. Besides the Laplace equation this includes the so-called saddle point theory which is an abstract framework and is then applied to the Stokes equations as well as to the coupled Stokes–Darcy problem in Chap.  6.
