Approach to equilibrium for a forced Burgers equation

  • Werner Kirsch

We show that approach to equilibrium in certain forced Burgers equations is implied by a decay estimate on a suitable intrinsic semigroup estimate, and we verify this estimate in a variety of cases including a periodic force.
