This volume is the result of a workshop, “The Navier-Stokes Equations in Venice”, which took place in the Palazzo Pesaro-Papafava in Venice (part of the Warwick in Venice program), April 8th–12th, 2013.
Several of the speakers agreed to write review papers related to their contributions to the workshop, while others have written more traditional research papers.We believe that this volume therefore provides an accessible summary of a wide range of active research topics, along with some exciting new results, and we hope that it will prove a useful resource for both graduate students new to the area and to more established researchers.
We would like to express their gratitude to the following sponsors of the workshop and the writing of this volume of proceedings: JCR was supported by an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship (grant EP/G007470/1). JLR is currently supported by the European Research Council (ERC grant agreement n. 616797).
Finally it is a pleasure to thank Chiara Croff, the Venice administrator of Warwick in Venice, for her assistance during the organization of the workshop.
