Title: Serrin blow-up criterion for strong solutions to the 3-D
compressible nematic liquid crystal flows with vacuum
Author: Qiao Liu (Hunan Normal Univ., Changsha, Hunan, China)
Abstract:
In this article, we extend the well-known Serrin's blow-up criterion
for solutions of the 3-D incompressible Navier-Stokes equations to
the 3-D compressible nematic liquid crystal flows where the initial
vacuum is allowed. It is proved that for the initial-boundary value
problem of the 3-D compressible nematic liquid crystal flows in a
bounded domain, the strong solution exists globally if the velocity
satisfies the Serrin's condition and $L^1(0,T;L^{\infty})$-norm of
the gradient of the velocity is bounded.
