From Euler to the semi-geostrophic system: convergence under uniform convexity
Pages: 375 – 386
We prove that if the initial data is well prepared, then certain solutions to the Euler system converge to a solution of the Semi-Geostrophic system with constant Coriolis force. The main assumptions on the strong solution are the boundedness of the velocity field as well as the uniform convexity of the Legendre–Fenchel transform of the modified pressure.
