Existence of global weak solutions to fokker-planck and navier-stokes-fokker-planck equations in kinetic models of dilute polymers
- This survey paper reviews recent developments concerning the existence of global weak solutions to Fokker-Planck equations with unbounded drift terms, and coupled Navier-Stokes-Fokker-Planck systems of partial differential equations, that arise in finitely extensible nonlinear elastic (FENE) type kinetic models of incompressible dilute polymeric fluids in the case of general noncorotational flow.
