On a Caginalp phase-field system with two temperatures and memory
Rights accessOpen Access
The Caginalp phase-field system has been proposed in  as a simple mathematical model for phase transition phenomena. In this paper, we are concerned with a generalization of this system based on the Gurtin-Pipkin law with two temperatures for heat conduction with memory, apt to describe transition phenomena in nonsimple materials. The model consists of a parabolic equation governing the order parameter which is linearly coupled with a nonclassical integrodifferential equation ruling the evolution of the thermodynamic temperature of the material. Our aim is to construct a robust family of exponential attractors for the associated semigroup, showing the stability of the system with respect to the collapse of the memory kernel. We also study the spatial behavior of the solutions in a semi-infinite cylinder, when such solutions exist.
