Sharp rate of decay of solutions to 2-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. (English) Zbl 0823.35145

The author studies the optimal decay rate of global solutions to the initial value problem for the two-dimensional incompressible Navier- Stokes equations \[ u_ t+ u\nabla u- \Delta u+ \nabla p=0, \quad \nabla\cdot u=0, \quad u(x,0)= u_ 0(x), \qquad x\in \mathbb{R}^ 2. \] He proves, using Fourier transform methods, that a solution satisfies the estimate \(\| u(t) \|_{L^ 2}\leq C(1+ t)^{-1/2}\), provided \(u_ 0\in L^ 1\cap H^ 2\) and \(\int_{\mathbb{R}^ 2} u_ 0 (x)dx \neq 0\).
