Zero kinetic undercooling limit in the supercooled Stefan problem

  title={Zero kinetic undercooling limit in the supercooled Stefan problem},
  author={Graeme Baker and Mykhaylo Shkolnikov},
  journal={arXiv: Probability},
We study the solutions of the one-phase supercooled Stefan problem with kinetic undercooling, which describes the freezing of a supercooled liquid, in one spatial dimension. Assuming that the initial temperature lies between the equilibrium freezing point and the characteristic invariant temperature throughout the liquid our main theorem shows that, as the kinetic undercooling parameter tends to zero, the free boundary converges to the (possibly irregular) free boundary in the supercooled… Expand

McKean-Vlasov equations involving hitting times: blow-ups and global solvability
This paper is concerned with the analysis of blow-ups for two McKean-Vlasov equations involving hitting times. Let $(B(t); \, t \ge 0)$ be standard Brownian motion, and $\tau:= \inf\{t \ge 0: X(t)Expand


Kinetic Undercooling Regularization of Supercooled Stefan Problems
In certain circumstances solutions of the one-phase supercooled Stefan problem in one space dimension with a constant melting temperature can blow up in finite time, with the free boundary movingExpand
Global solutions to the supercooled Stefan problem with blow-ups: regularity and uniqueness
We consider the supercooled Stefan problem, which captures the freezing of a supercooled liquid, in one space dimension. A probabilistic reformulation of the problem allows to define globalExpand
Asymptotic behavior of solutions to the Stefan problem with a kinetic condition at the free boundary
We study the large time behaviour of the free boundary for a one-phase Stefan problem with supercooling and a kinetic condition u = −e|⋅ṡ| at the free boundary x = s(t) . The problem is posed on theExpand
The Stefan problem with kinetic condition at the free boundary
This paper considers a class of one-dimensional solidification problems, in which a kinetic undercooling is incorporated into the temperature condition at the interface. A model problem with linearExpand
A general one-phase Stefan problem
then (1.1) has a simple interpretation as a problem in heat conduction with melting: the region 0 < x < a is initially solid with the temperature distribution <p(x), the region a < x < oo is liquidExpand
A McKean–Vlasov equation with positive feedback and blow-ups
We study a McKean--Vlasov equation arising from a mean-field model of a particle system with positive feedback. As particles hit a barrier they cause the other particles to jump in the direction ofExpand

Uniqueness for contagious McKean–Vlasov systems in the weak feedback regime
We present a simple uniqueness argument for a collection of McKean-Vlasov problems that have seen recent interest. Our first result shows that, in the weak feedback regime, there is global uniquenessExpand
At the mercy of the common noise: blow-ups in a conditional McKean–Vlasov Problem
We extend a model of positive feedback and contagion in large mean-field systems by introducing a common source of noise driven by Brownian motion. Although the dynamics in the model are continuous,Expand
Particle systems with singular interaction through hitting times: Application in systemic risk modeling
We propose an interacting particle system to model the evolution of a system of banks with mutual exposures. In this model, a bank defaults when its normalized asset value hits a lower threshold, andExpand
