# Renormalization group and the Ginzburg-Landau equation

Renormalization Group and the Ginzburg-Landau Equation
J.Bricmont UCL, Physique Theorique, B-1348 Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium A.Kupiainen Rutgers University, Mathematics Department, New Brunswick NJ 08903, USA
We use Renormalization Group methods to prove detailed long time asymptotics for the solutions of the complex Ginzburg-Landau equations with initial data approaching, as x ! 1, di erent spiralling stationary solutions. A universal pattern is formed, depending only on this asymptotics at spatial in nity.

Abstract

1. Introduction
Parabolic PDE's often exhibit universal scaling behaviour in long times: the solution behaves as u(x; t) t? 2 f (t? 2 x) as t ! 1, where the exponents and and the function f are universal, i.e. independent on the initial data and equation, in given classes. This fact has an explanation in terms of the Renormalization Group (RG) 5, 6, 1], very much like the similar phenomenon in statistical mechanics. In 1] a mathematical theory of this RG was developed and here we would like to apply these ideas to a concrete situation, namely the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation u = @ u + u ? juj u _ (1) @ where u : R R ! C, @ = @x and dot denotes the time derivative. (1) has an in nite set of stationary solutions
2 2

uq (x) = 1 ? q ei qx (2) and a natural question is to inquire about the time development of initial data u(x) that approaches two such solutions at 1: lim ju(x) ? uq (x)j = 0: (3) x! 1

We prove in this paper a detailed long time asymptotics for such data. As a consequence, we shall show that, for any interval I , p C sup ju(x; t) ? ei t uq (x)j pI (4) t x2I where the constants q , and depend only on the boundary conditions (3). For the detailed asymptotics, see the Theorem in Section 3. This result ampli es those proved in 3].

2. The Renormalisation Group idea
Following 3], we write

u = (1 ? s)ei : The equation (1.1) becomes in these variables s = @ s ? 2s + 3s ? s + (@ ) ? s(@ ) _ _ = @ ? 2@ @s @ + G(s; @s; @ ) 1?s

with the initial data (it will be convenient to take the initial time as t = 1)
x! 1

lim s(x; 1) = s ; x! 1 j (x; 1) ? x ? j = 0: lim (3) where 2s = F (s ; ). We will specify below the precise space of initial data (3). We will prove the following asymptotics as t ! 1 p x x 1 (4) (x; t) = t ( p ) + ( p ) + O( p ) t t t x 1 x s(x; t) = s ( p ) + p r ( p ) + O( 1 ) (5) t t t t again in a certain Banach space. The functions , , s , r are universal, depending on the initial data only through the boundary conditions (3). They are smooth and therefore u will have the asymptotics (1.4), with = (0); q =
0

(0);

= (0):

Before going to the proofs, we will explain in a heuristic fashion the RG idea behind the proof. There are two mechanisms giving rise to the asymptotics (4), (5): the di usive approach of to the scaling form (4) and the "slaving" of s to follow whatever is doing, due to the linear ?2s term in (2). We will now explain the rst mechanism in the context of an equation for only. We will see in the next Section that this is precisely what the slaving mechanism produces: s in (2) will be e ectively "slaved" to a function of @ only.

Thus, we consider the equation _ = (1 + a(@ ; @ ))@ ; (x; 1) = f (x) (6) with the boundary conditions (3) for the initial data f . We assume that a is analytic around the origin. The RG analysis of (6) proceeds as follows. We x some (Banach) space of initial data S . Next, we pick a number L > 1 and set (7) L (x; t) = L (Lx; L t) where will be chosen later and solves (6) with the initial data f 2 S . The RG map R : S ! S (this has to be proven!) is then (Rf )(x) = L(x; 1): (8) Note that L satis es _ L = (1 + aL(@ L ; @ L))@ L: (9) with aL(x; y) = a(L? ? x; L? ? y). We may now iterate R to study the asymptotics of (6). R depends, besides , on L and a. Let us denote this by RL;a . We have then the "semigroup property" RLn ;a = RL;aLn?1 : : : RL;aL RL;a: (10) Each R on the RHS involves a solution of a xed time problem and the long time problem on the LHS is reduced to an iteration of these. Letting t = L n, we have 1 (11) (x; t) = t? 2 (RLn;a f )(xt? 2 ): Now one tries to show that there exists an such that (12) aLn ! a ; RLn;a f ! f where (13) RL;a f = f is the xed point of the RG, corresponding to the scale-invariant equation _ = (1 + a )@ . Then, rescaling x, the asymptotics of the original problem is given by (xt = ; t) t? 2 f (x): (14) What are and f ? To understand this, consider rst the trivial case a = 0. This is just the di usion equation with initial conditions increasing linearly at in nity. This problem is of course exactly soluble. We have Z 1 p p 1 e? 4 y?x 2 f ( ty)dy; t? 2 ( tx; t + 1) = p 1 4 t !t!1 ?x + ( ? ?)(x + 2@ )e(x) (x) (15)

3. The full model

We may summarize the previous discussion in a more conventional language: we look for solutions of (2.2) of the form (x; t) = (x; t) + (x; t) + (x; t) s(x; t) = s (x; t) + r (x; t) + v(x; t) with (1)

d (we stick to this abuse of notation in order not to proliferate symbols, but we shall use dz or prime for the derivative with respect to the single argument of ; , etc...,as opposed to @ for the partial derivative with respect to x). The boundary conditions are

Thus, let us set

s = s (@ ); (5) where s solves the algebraic equation ?2s + F (s ; @ ) = 0, which is equivalent to q 1 ? s = 1 ? (@ ) , so that s is of order (@ ) for (@ ) small. Note that, by x x (2), @ (x; t) = 0 ( pt ), so s ( pt ) = s ( 0 ). Then is the solution of _ = @ + G(s ; @s ; @ ), i.e., using (2),

We will now specify the initial data for (2.2) that we will consider. We take a perturbation of a \Gaussian" data satisfying the boundary conditions. (x) (x; 1) = (x) + (x) + (x) (25) (26) s(x) s(x; 1) = s (@ (x)) + r (@ (x)) + v(x) and describe now a Banach space of and v. Due to the fact that the equations (22),(23) involve second derivatives in the nonlinear terms (v is coupled to @ and to @v), it is useful to use Fourier transform to control smoothness. Due to the fact that they involve functions like that do not decay at in nity, we need to be careful about the spatial behaviour at in nity. We need norms that combine these two aspects, i.e. the phase space behaviour of and v. Thus, let be a non negative C 1 function on R with compact support on the interval (?1; 1), such that its translates by Z, n = ( ? n), form a partition of unity on R. For f 2 C , we then introduce the norms, for j = 1; 2 d kf k j = sup (1 + n )(1 + k )j n@ i f (k)j: (27)

Roughly, kf k j < 1 means that f falls o at least as x? at in nity and f^(k) as k? . Note that r , the derivatives of and s and @ have a norm bounded by (actually, by for s and r ). To check this, use the explicit form (2.15), (2.26) of ; and the bound kf k j C kf kN for N j + 2. The n could be changed to anything increasing 2 faster than n , for > 1, but not faster than e n8 (coming from (8)). These norms for di erent choices of may be shown to be equivalent. The reason we need di erent norms for v and has to do with the slaving and will be explained below. Our main theorem may now be stated. Theorem. For any > 0 there is an > 0 such that for j j, j j, k k , kvk , the equations (2:2) have a unique solution satisfying p p 2 lim t 1 ? k ( t ; t) ? t ( ) ?

1 The \anomalous" term (0) equals ? 2 ( ? ? ) + O( ) and q = (@ )(0) = ( ? ?) + O( ) Remark 2. The Theorem does not depend much on the speci c form of F and G in (2.2). For a more general application of the slaving principle, see 2]. One obtains easily more re ned asymptotics, as in 1], namely the error in the rst equation in (28) 1 is t? 2 ( ) + O(t? ). Proof. Using the Propositions (where we always assume that we have N as large as needed), we can replace in (25), (26), , by the true xed points , , and still denote by ; v the remainder. We consider the equations (22,23) and solve them by the RG method. Thus, let n n n (x; t) = (L x; L t); n (x) = n (x; 1) vn(x; t) = Lnv(Lnx; L n t); Vn(x) = vn(x; 1): (30) We have (31) n (x) = n (Lx; L ) ; Vn (x) = Lvn (Lx; L ) and n , vn are the solutions of the equations _ n = @ n + An (vn; @vn; @ n ) + Dn (32) n v + B (v ; @ ) + E vn = @ vn ?

For Bn the analysis is similar, but we have to take advantage of the "mass" term, ?2L n , in (40), in order to control the terms with 3 ? p ? p = 2 in (37) or 3 ? p ? p = 1 in (38). It is also here that the di erence in the norms (27) enters. The only change in (A) above is in (46):

(for jl ? mj 2). For (B), we integrate by parts @x = ?@y in (45) (recall i 1 here), and we get @y ( m(y) p(y)Fp(y)). After going to Fourier transform, as in (53), we see that we can use (54), (56) when m (y) or p(y) is replaced by its derivative. We also have (57) for Fp(y) replaced by its derivative, because F does not involve derivatives of v and contains

CL n : (63) The bounds (49) for the inhomogenous terms are proved in the same way, remembering that dp ?1 in (36) and 3 ? p ? p 1 in (38). For H ; H , it is easy to see that their norm is bounded by C , because derivatives of s ; r are bounded using (10), (20). Thus, we have shown that T maps B into itself ( rst, choose L so that, in (39), C L ; then, take small enough, depending on L). The contraction is proved in the same way : kA( ; v ) ? A( ; v )k CL (k ? k + kv ? v k ) kB( ; v ) ? B( ; v )k CL (k ? k + kv ? v k ) (64) To complete the induction for (39), we need to study the inhomogenous terms in (40).

for L large, since jlj C log L. Hence, (68) follows. The corresponding term for v in (40) is estimated similarly (it is of course superexponentially small), and the other contributions to n and vn are O( n ), as are those of A and B, see (59), (63). (39) is proved. 2 Proof of the Propositions. Consider rst (9). Using (6), (7), and B = 0, we have the equation d d d d d d (73) B = G(s ( dz ( + )); dz s ( dz ( + )); dz ( + )) g( dz ; dz ) Put

We write the latter as dz22 B ? h = d + )B ? h = ?h + ( ? z d )B ? h. Thus, (?B ? z dz dz d d N (h) = R(B ? h; dz B ? h; z dz B ? h) (76) with R : C ! C analytic near zero. Thus all we now need is d d Lemma. The operators B ? , dz B ? and z dz B ? are continous in the norm (8).

while kN (h)kN C ( khkN + khkN ). So, we can use the contraction mapping principle in a ball whose radius is of order around h . This proves (9). The bound (10) holds d d because s is of order ( dz ) and dz is of order . Proposition 2 is proven in the same way. It is enough to note that solves (17) with the RHS equal to zero and, setting h = A , with A as in 1], we get an equation like (75), with N (h) linear in h and where h = the RHS of (17) with replaced by ; we have the bounds kh kN C for N = N 0 ? 1 where N 0 is the N of Proposition 1, and kN (h)kN C khkN . 2
