Nearly one dimensional singularities of solutions to the Navier-Stokes inequality

  • Vladimir Scheffer


There exists a functionu satisfying (1)u is a weak solution to the Navier-Stokes equations of incompressible fluid flow in three-space with an external force that reduces the speed at every point, (2) the internal singularities ofu have Hausdorff dimension close to 1.
