On uniform in time $H^2$-regularity of the solution for the 2D Cahn-Hilliard equation

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this article, we provide the uniform $H^2$-regularity results with respect to $t$ of the solution and its time derivatives for the 2D Cahn-Hilliard equation. Based on sharp a priori estimates for the solution of problem under the assumption on the initial value, we show that the $H^2$-regularity of the solution and its first and second order time derivatives only depend on $\epsilon^{-1}$.
