Stability of contact discontinuity for an isentropic viscosity system with Chaplygin gas
Pages: 1609 – 1623
This paper is devoted to studying the large-time behavior of solutions for an isentropic viscosity system with Chaplygin gas. Since all the characteristic fields of the corresponding inviscid Euler equations are linearly degenerate, the classical Riemann solutions only contain contact discontinuities. It is proved that for the isentropic viscosity system with Chaplygin gas, the viscous contact wave which approximates the corresponding contact discontinuity is asymptotically stable. The proof is given by elementary energy methods without anti-derivative technique.
