Forced Initial Boundary Value Problems for Burgers Equation
In recent years there has been considerable research devoted towards the understanding of nonlinear evolution equations. There are a number of such equations which are exactly solvable and for which significant informations can be obtained. These studies are primarily directed towards autonomous equations with either rapidly decaying or periodic boundary values. On the other hand, forced nonlinear equations are certainly of physical significance. As such, the “forced” Burgers equation may be viewed as a prototypical model. In fact it describes the time evolution of onedimensional nonlinear diffusive systems under the influence of an external driver (see, for example, Ref. ).
