Abstract: This talk is concerned with a diffuse interface model for the gas-liquid phase transition. The model consists the compressible Navier-Stokes equations with van der Waals equation of state and a modified Allen-Cahn equation. The global existence and the sharp interface limit of the strong solution is considered. Furthermore, the phase variable and the density of the gas-liquid mixture are proved to stay in the physical reasonable interval. The proofs are based on the elementary energy method and the method of matched asymptotic expansion, but with new development, where some techniques are introduced to establish the uniform bounds of the density and to treat the non-convexity of the pressure function.
