On the Bardina’s Model in the Whole Space

  • Roger Lewandowski
  • Luigi C. Berselli


We consider the Bardina’s model for turbulent incompressible flows in the whole space with a cut-off frequency of order \(\alpha ^{-1} >0\). We show that for any \(\alpha >0\) fixed, the model has a unique regular solution defined for all \(t \in [0, \infty [\).
