Global mass-preserving solutions for a two-dimensional chemotaxis system with rotational flux components coupled with a full Navier–Stokes equation

Institut für Mathematik, Universität Paderborn, 33098 Paderborn, Germany

We study the chemotaxis–Navier–Stokes system
$ \left\{\;\; \begin{aligned} n_t + u \cdot \nabla n &\;\; = \;\; \Delta n - \nabla \cdot (nS(x,n,c) \nabla c), \\ c_t + u\cdot \nabla c &\;\; = \;\; \Delta c - n f(c), \\ u_t + (u\cdot \nabla) u &\;\; = \;\; \Delta u + \nabla P + n \nabla \phi, \;\;\;\;\;\; \nabla \cdot u = 0, \;\;\;\;\;\; \end{aligned} \right. \tag{$\star$} $
with no-flux boundary conditions for
$ n $
,
$ c $
and Dirichlet boundary conditions for
$ u $
in a bounded, convex, smooth domain
$ \Omega \subseteq \mathbb{R}^2 $
, which is motivated by recent modeling approaches from biology for aerobic bacteria suspended in a sessile water drop. We further do not assume the chemotactic sensitivity
$ S $
to be scalar as is common, but to be able to attain values in
$ \mathbb{R}^{2\times2} $
, which allows for more complex modeling of bacterial behavior.
While there have been various results for scalar
$ S $
and some for the non-scalar case with only a Stokes fluid equation simplifying the analysis of the third equation in (
$ \star $
), we consider the fully combined case giving us very little to go on in terms of a priori estimates. We nonetheless manage to still achieve sufficient estimates using Trudinger–Moser type inequalities to extend the existence results seen in a recent work by Winkler for the Stokes case with non-scalar
$ S $
to the full Navier–Stokes case. Namely, we construct a similar global mass-preserving solution for (
$ \star $
) in planar convex domains under fairly weak assumptions on the parameter functions.
