We consider an inhomogeneous linear Boltzmann equation, with an external confining potential. The collision operator is a simple relaxation toward a local Maxwellian, therefore without diffusion. We prove the exponential time decay toward the global Maxwellian, with an explicit rate of decay. The methods are based on hypoelliptic methods transposed here to(More)
Ventcel boundary conditions are second order differential conditions that appear in asymptotic models. Like Robin boundary conditions, they lead to wellposed varia-tional problems under a sign condition of a coefficient. Nevertheless situations where this condition is violated appeared in several works. The wellposedness of such problems was still open.(More)
In this paper, we consider the equations of linear elasticity in an exterior domain. We exhibit artificial boundary conditions on a circle, which lead to a non-coercive second order boundary value problem. In the particular case of an axisymmetric geometry, explicit computations can be performed in Fourier series proving the well-posedness except for a(More)
