TITLENonlinear Stokes Equations applied to Ice Sheet Dynamics: Mathematical Modeling and Computation

ABSTRACT In this presentation, we delve into the mathematical modeling and computation of ice sheet dynamics, exploring a novel approach necessitated by the crucial role played by the variable exponent in Glen's flow law, as indicated by numerical experiments in the literature. While the classic Glen's flow law typically considers the exponent as a positive constant, our study introduces a variable exponent. As an initial exploration of this mathematical model, we study the mathematical properties and propose relevant numerical methods for the nonlinear Stokes equations.
