Abstract

This paper is concerned with the stability of a parallel flow of the compressible Navier-Stokes equation in a cylindrical domain. The spectrum of the linearized operator is analyzed for the purpose of the study of the nonlinear stability. It is shown that, if the Reynolds and Mach numbers are sufficiently small, then the linearized semigroup is decomposed into two parts; one behaves like a solution of a one dimensional heat equation as time goes to infinity and the other one decays exponentially. Some estimates related to the spectral projections are established, which will also be useful for the study of the nonlinear problem.
