Large-frequency global regularity for the incompressible Navier–Stokes equation

  • Joel D. Avrin (a1)


We obtain global existence and regularity of strong solutions to the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations for a variety of boundary conditions in such a way that the initial and forcing data can be large in the high-frequency eigenspaces of the Stokes operator. We do not require that the domain be thin as in previous analyses. But in the case of thin domains (and zero Dirichlet boundary conditions) our results represent a further improvement and refinement of previous results obtained.
