Kim, Inwon and Mészáros, Alpár Richárd (2018) 'On nonlinear cross-diffusion systems : an optimal transport approach.', Calculus of variations and partial differential equations., 57 (3). p. 79.
We study a nonlinear, degenerate cross-diffusion model which involves two densities with two different drift velocities. A general framework is introduced based on its gradient flow structure in Wasserstein space to derive a notion of discrete-time solutions. Its continuum limit, due to the possible mixing of the densities, only solves a weaker version of the original system. In one space dimension, we find a stable initial configuration which allows the densities to be segregated. This leads to the evolution of a stable interface between the two densities, and to a stronger convergence result to the continuum limit. In particular derivation of a standard weak solution to the system is available. We also study the incompressible limit of the system, which addresses transport under a height constraint on the total density. In one space dimension we show that the problem leads to a two-phase Hele-Shaw type flow.
