Well-posedness and global attractors for a non-isothermal viscous relaxationof nonlocal Cahn-Hilliard equations

Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Providence College, Providence, RI 02918, USA

Special Issues: Nonlinear Evolution PDEs, Interfaces and Applications

We investigate a non-isothermal viscous relaxation of some nonlocal Cahn-Hilliard equations. This perturbation problem generates a family of solution operators exhibiting dissipation and conservation. The solution operators admit a family of compact global attractors that are bounded in a more regular phase-space
