Current research

My recent research interest is mathematical turbulence, in particular, to clarify the relation between ``zeroth law" and ``vortex-stretching". Zeroth law is the cornerstone of turbulence, especially, origin of the Onsager conjecture. To the best of my knowledge, up to now, nothing was known about the zeroth law itself in mathematics. I would explain our recent result (with Prof. In-Jee Jeong) in the following:
We prepared small-scale vortex blob and large-scale anti-parallel vortex tubes for the initial data, and showed that the corresponding 3D Euler flow creates instantaneous vortex-stretching. In turn, using this stretching, we showed that the corresponding 3D Navier-Stokes flow satisfies a modified version of zeroth-law, which is the cornerstone of the turbulence study field. Thus this instantaneous vortex-stretching could be a key to make further progress in this field. We conjecture that an initial data which satisfies the actual zeroth-law should behave as in Goto-Saito-Kawahara's turbulence picture (2017). In the Appendix, we mathematically formulated their turbulence picture and proved Kolmogorov's $-5/3$-law, by assuming space-locality, scale-locality, energy flux in equilibrium state and space-filling (Frisch 1995).
