Global existence and optimal decay estimates of strong solutions to the compressible viscoelastic flows

This paper is dedicated to the global existence and optimal decay estimates of strong solutions to the compressible viscoelastic flows in the whole space $\mathbb{R}^n$ with any $n\geq2$. We aim at extending those works by Qian \& Zhang and Hu \& Wang to the critical $L^p$ Besov space, which is not related to the usual energy space... With aid of intrinsic properties of viscoelastic fluids as in \cite{QZ1}, we consider a more complicated hyperbolic-parabolic system than usual Navier-Stokes equations. We define "\emph{two effective velocities}", which allows us to cancel out the coupling among the density, the velocity and the deformation tensor. Consequently, the global existence of strong solutions is constructed by using elementary energy approaches only. Besides, the optimal time-decay estimates of strong solutions will be shown in the general $L^p$ critical framework, which improves those decay results due to Hu \& Wu such that initial velocity could be \textit{large highly oscillating}. read more
