In this paper we study existence and stability of shock profiles for a 1-D compressible Euler system in the context of quantum hydrodynamic models.

Abstract

In this paper we study existence and stability of shock profiles for a 1-D compressible Euler system in the context of quantum hydrodynamic models. The dispersive term is originated by the quantum effects described through the Bohm potential; moreover we introduce a (linear) viscosity to analyze its interplay with the former while proving existence, monotonicity and stability of traveling waves connecting a Lax shock for the underlying Euler system. The existence of monotone profiles is proved for sufficiently small shocks; while the case of large shocks leads to the (global) existence for an oscillatory profile, where dispersion plays a significant role. The spectral analysis of the linearized problem about a profile is also provided. In particular, we derive a sufficient condition for the stability of the essential spectrum and we estimate the maximum modulus of the eigenvalues in the unstable plane, using a careful analysis of the Evans function.
