Generalized Lieb-Thirring Inequalities and the Dimension of Attractors Associated to the Ginzburg-Landau p.d.e.

Conference paper


This paper is concerned with the dimension of the global attractor that describes the long time behavior of the solutions to the 2D-Ginzburg-Landau partial differential equation. An upper bound on this dimension is derived via a generalized Lieb-Thirring inequality, while lower bounds follow from the classical (linear) stability analysis. As a matter of fact these bounds are of the same order and therefore optimal.
