We show the critical Sobolev inequalities in the Besov spaces with the logarithmic form such as Brezis-Gallouet-Wainger and Beale-Kato-Majda. As an application of those inequalities, the regularity problem under the critical condition to the Navier-Stokes equations, the Euler equations in \({mathbb R}^n\) and the gradient flow to the harmonic map to the sphere are discussed. Namely the Serrin-Ohyama type regularity criteria are improved in the terms of the Besov spaces.
