Abstract:

This paper presents a nontechnical review of current research efforts in the mathematical theory of viscoelastic materials. Recent results concerning the existence, uniqueness and regularity of solutions for initial value problems as well as for steady flow problems are discussed and a number of open problems are pointed out. Originator-supplied keywords include Viscoelastic fluids, steady flows, nonlinear evolution problems, energy estimates, development of shocks, and singular kernels.
