# Confinement for repulsive-attractive kernels

@article{Balague2012ConfinementFR, title={Confinement for repulsive-attractive kernels}, author={Daniel Balagu'e and Jos{\'e} A. Carrillo and Y. Yao}, journal={Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems-series B}, year={2012}, volume={19}, pages={1227-1248} }

We investigate the confinement properties of solutions of the
aggregation equation with repulsive-attractive potentials. We show
that solutions remain compactly supported in a large fixed ball
depending on the initial data and the potential. The arguments
apply to the functional setting of probability measures with
mildly singular repulsive-attractive potentials and to the
functional setting of smooth solutions with a potential being the
sum of the Newtonian repulsion at the origin and a… Expand

Some free boundary problems involving non-local diffusion and aggregation

- Physics, Medicine
- Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences

The equations selected follow two recent trends in diffusion theory: considering anomalous diffusion with long-range effects, which leads to fractional operators or other operators involving kernels with large tails, leading to delicate long-term equilibria whose description is still incipient.
