On a probabilistic description of small scale structures in 3D fluids. (English) Zbl 1017.76074

Summary: We introduce a vortex structure based on three-dimensional Brownian motion. The interaction energy \(H_{xy}\) between different vortex filaments \((x+W_t)\) and \((y+W_t)\) is rigorously defined and proved to be finite. The divergence of \(H_{xy}\) as \(|x-y|\to 0\) is analyzed and used to prove that the total energy of vortex structure is finite, under suitable assumptions. We also establish a relation with the intersection local time.
