Generation of vorticity near the boundary in planar Navier-Stokes flows

  • G. Benfatto
  • M. Pulvirenti


We construct the solutions of the planar Navier-Stokes flow for a viscous incompressible fluid in the half-plane, by means of a boundary layer equation describing the production of vorticity on the boundary. Regularity properties are also discussed.
