Abstract

Some recent developments in the study of fluid-particle interaction models are reviewed. A viscous model governed by the Navier- Stokes-Smoluchowski system and an inviscid model governed by the Euler-Smoluchowski system are presented and analyzed. For the viscous model, results on global existence, asymptotic behavior, singular limits and weak-strong uniqueness are discussed, whereas the analysis on the inviscid model deals with the issue of existence of smooth solutions.
