Viscosity splitting method for three dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. (English) Zbl 0673.35085

Summary: Three dimensional initial boundary value problem of the Navier-Stokes equation is considered. The equation is split in an Euler equation and a non-stationary Stokes equation within each time step. Unlike the conventional approach, we apply a non-homogeneous Stokes equation instead of homogeneous one. Under the hypothesis that the original problem possesses a smooth solution, the estimate of the \(H^{s+1}\) norm, \(0\leq s<3/2\), of the approximate solution and the order of the \(L^ 2\) norm of the errors is obtained.
