Remarks on a paper by J. T. Beale, T. Kato, and A. Majda (Remarks on the breakdown of smooth solutions for the 3-dimensional Euler equations). (English) Zbl 0589.76040
Summary: See the article, [ibid. 94, 61-66 (1984; Zbl 0573.76029).]
We prove that the maximum norm of the deformation tensor controls the possible breakdown of smooth solutions for the 3-dimensional Euler equations. More precisely, the loss of regularity in a local smooth solution of the Euler equations implies the growth without bound of the deformation tensor as the critical time approaches; equivalently, if the deformation tensor remains bounded the existence of a smooth solution is guaranteed.
