Uniqueness of weak solutions to a model of electro-kinetic fluid
Pages: 411 – 421
In this paper we prove the uniqueness of weak solutions to a model of electro-kinetic fluid which consists of a momentum equation together with transport equations of charges. Our result is new in that it holds even when the momentum vanishes. The existence of weak solutions has been proved in P.Biler, W. Hebisch and T. Nadzieja, Nonlinear Anal.
