A Note on Viscous Capillary Fluids in Fast Rotation

Francesco Fanelli


The present note is devoted to the study of singular perturbation problems for a Navier-Stokes-Korteweg system with Coriolis force. Such a model describes the motion of viscous compressible capillary fluids under the action of the Earth rotation. We are interested in the asymptotic behavior of a family of weak solutions in the limit for the Mach, the Rossby and the Weber numbers going to 0.
