We will show how to obtain general nonlinear aggregation-diffusion models, including Keller-Segel type models with nonlinear diffusions, as relaxations from nonlocal compressible Euler-type hydrodynamic systems via the relative entropy method. We plan to discuss the assumptions on the confinement and interaction potentials depending on the relative energy of the free energy functional allowing for this relaxation limit to hold. We will deal with weak solutions for the nonlocal compressible Euler-type systems and strong solutions for the limiting aggregation-diffusion equations. Finally, we will mention how to show the existence of weak solutions to the nonlocal compressible Euler-type systems satisfying the needed properties for completeness sake.
This is a joint result with Jose Carrillo and Yingping Peng.
