The book addresses recent developments of the mathematical research on the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations
as well as on related problems. In particular, there are covered:
1) existence, uniqueness, and the regularity of weak solutions;
2) stability of the motion in rest and the asymptotic behavior of solutions;
3) singularity and blow-up of weak and strong solutions;
4) vorticity and energy conservation;
5) motions of rotating fluids, or of fluids surrounding a rotating body;
6) free boundary problems;
7) maximal regularity theory and other abstract results for mathematical fluid mechanics.
For this quarter century, these topics have been playing a central role in both pure and applied mathematics
and having a great influence to the developm
ent of the functional analysis, harmonic analysis and numerical analysis whose tools make a a substantial contribution to the investigation of nonlinear partial differential equations, particularly the Navier-Stokes and the Euler equations.
There are 24 articles in this book in which the nonlinear PDE arising in the fluid mechanics are
