On the conservation of energy in two-dimensional incompressible flows

01/17/2020 ∙ by S. Lanthaler, et al. ∙ 0

We prove the conservation of energy for weak and statistical solutions of the two-dimensional Euler equations, generated as strong (in an appropriate topology) limits of the underlying Navier-Stokes equations and a Monte Carlo-Spectral Viscosity numerical approximation, respectively. We characterize this conservation of energy in terms of a uniform decay of the so-called structure function, allowing us to extend existing results on energy conservation. Moreover, we present numerical experiments with a wide variety of initial data to validate our theory and to observe energy conservation in a large class of two-dimensional incompressible flows.
