On two-dimensional Navier-Stokes flows with rotational symmetries. (English) Zbl 1179.35215
The authors study the decay (both time and space) of solutions of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in \(\mathbb{R}^2\) based on decay conditions on the initial data. A general order of decay of the solution is given. Higher order decay is shown to be possible if the initial data satisfies not only a faster decay but additionally a rotational symmetry, expressed in terms of covariance of the initial data with respect to a dihedral group.
