Decay results for weak solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations on \({\mathbb{R}}\) n. (English) Zbl 0652.35095

The paper deals with the Cauchy problem of the Navier-Stokes equation on R n. The author derives the decay result of \(L_ 2\)-norm of a weak solution u of the above problem. These decay results depend solely on the decay of the solution \(u_ 0\) of the heat problem with the same data. The main tool is the Fourier transform. The existence of a solution for the case \(n\leq 4\) is examined in the appendix.
