Global existence of a strong solution to the Navier-Stokes equations in a curved thin domain (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk, we consider the Navier-Stokes equations with Navier's slip boundary conditions in a three-dimensional curved thin domain around a closed surface.
We establish the global-in-time existence of a strong solution for large data when the width of the thin domain is very small.
A key idea is to decompose a three-dimensional vector field into the average part which is almost two-dimensional and the residual part to which we can apply Poincaré type inequalities.
Such decomposition enables us to derive a good estimate for the inner product of the inertia term and the viscous term, which is essential for our arguments.
