Diffusive BGK Approximations for Nonlinear Multidimensional Parabolic
Equations
F. Bouchut, F.R. Guarguaglini, and R. Natalini
Abstract:
We introduce a class of discrete velocity BGK type
approximations to multidimensional scalar nonlinearly diffusive
conservation laws. We prove the wellposedness of these models,
a priori bounds and kinetic entropy inequalities that allow
to pass to the limit towards the unique entropy solution
to the diffusive but possibly degenerate equation, recently
obtained by Carrillo. Examples of such BGK models are provided.
