Averaging method applied to the three-dimensional primitive equations.

Petcu, M. and Temam, R. and Wirosoetisno, D. (2016) 'Averaging method applied to the three-dimensional primitive equations.', Discrete and continuous dynamical systems., 36 (10). pp. 5681-5707.


In this article we study the small Rossby number asymptotics for the three-dimensional primitive equations of the oceans and of the atmosphere. The fast oscillations present in the exact solution are eliminated using an averaging method, the so-called renormalisation group method.
