Title: Relative Entropy and the Navier-Stokes-Smoluchowski System for Compressible Fluids

Abstract: This talk covers some mathematical results for the Navier-Stokes-Smoluchowski model for compressible fluid-particle interaction. The concept of relative entropy is discussed. The relative entropy is then used to produce inequalities that are used to produce a weak-strong uniqueness result and to show uniform bounds for low Mach number flow to produce a singular limit result.
