Global helically symmetric solutions to the stokes approximation equations for three-dimensional compressible viscous flows. (English) Zbl 1110.35067

Summary: We prove the existence and uniqueness of global strong solutions to the Cauchy problem of the compressible Stokes approximation equations for any (specific heat ratio) \(\gamma>1\) in \(\mathbb{R}^3\) when initial data are helically symmetric. Moreover, the large-time behavior of the strong solution and the existence of global weak solutions are obtained simultaneously. The proof is based on a Ladyzhenskaya interpolation type inequality for helically symmetric functions in \(\mathbb{R}^3\) and uniform a priori estimates. The present paper extends 2D existence results of P. L. Lions and Lu, Kazhikhov and Ukai to the three-dimensional helically symmetric case.
