Existence of axisymmetric weak solutions of the 3-D Euler equations for near-vortex-sheet initial data. (English) Zbl 0903.35050
Summary: We study the initial value problem for the 3-D Euler equation when the fluid is inviscid and incompressible, and flows with axisymmetry and without swirl. On the initial vorticity \(\omega_0\), we assume that \(\omega_0/r\) belongs to \(L(\log L (\mathbb{R}^3))^{\alpha}\) with \(\alpha >1/2\), where \(r\) is the distance to an axis of symmetry. To prove the existence of weak global solutions, we prove first a new a priori estimate for the solution.
