Functional-analytic existence results for an integral equation in geophysics
- 29 Downloads
We study a model in a deep way for arctic gyre flows which are uniform in the azimuthal direction. Such a model is transformed to a nonlinear integral equation on infinite-interval. By functional-analytic techniques, we investigate the existence of solutions of the integral equation with general nonlinear oceanic vorticities.
