The Navier-Stokes equations. An elementary functional analytic approach. (English) Zbl 0983.35004

Birkhäuser Advanced Texts. Basel: Birkhäuser. x, 367 p. (2001).
The book is an elementary and selfcontained approach to the mathematical theory of viscous incompressible fluid in a completely general domain \(\Omega\subseteq \mathbb{R}^n\) \((n\geq 2)\).
The monograph has five chapters. The first two chapters have an introductory character and contain, without proofs, some fundamental properties of spaces, distributions, operators, inequalities, embeddings, etc. In the third chapter, the stationary Navier-Stokes equations are investigated in the linearized and nonlinear cases, respectively. The nonstationary linearized theory is presented in chapter four, the full nonlinear case in chapter five.
The book is written in a well arranged way, easy to survey and with utilization of the newest results. For its study, it is necessary to know only the basic functional analytic tools in Hilbert and Banach spaces. It is determined for an extensive circle of readers, from students up to experts in science and also for specialists in the field.
