Positivity theorem. (English) Zbl 0854.35084
Summary: We show the positivity of the solution of the continuity equation of the Navier-Stokes system, with boundary conditions considered in [S. N. Antontsev, A. V. Kazhikhov and V. N. Monakhov, Boundary value problems in the mechanics of inhomogeneous fluids. (Russian), Novosibirsk: Nauka (1983; Zbl 0568.76001)]. From this result it follows the uniqueness of the solution. This enables us to simplify the solving of the whole nonlinear Navier-Stokes system in a weak formulation.
