Bounds on mixing norms for advection diffusion equations

Camilla Nobili
University of Hamburg

For this talk my starting point will be the conjecture of Charles Doering and Christopher Miles (stated in “Diffusion-limited mixing by incompressible flows”, Nonlinearity 2018) regarding “convergence to the Batchelor scale” of a suitable norm for mixing in passive scalars. I will sketch and contextualize my recent result in collaboration with Steffen Pottel connected to this conjecture and finally describe open problems and possible intermediate steps to the conjecture.
