Abstract (English) |
In this paper a phase-field model of Penrose-Fife type is considered for diffusive phse transitions with conserved order parameter. Different motivations lead to investigate the case when the heat flux is the superposition of two different contributions; one part is the gradient of a function of the absolute temperature theta, behaving like 1/theta, as theta approaches to 0 and like -theta as theta tends to +infinity while the other is given by the Gurtin Pipkin law introduced in the theory of materials with thermal memory. An existence result for a related initial-boundary value problem is proven. Strengthening some assumptions on the data, the uniqueness of the solution is also achieved. | |
