One component regularity for the Navier-Stokes equations. (English) Zbl 1149.35069

The authors show that regularity assumptions on one component of the velocity imply regularity of the full solution. These suffficient conditions are certain space-time regularity of the gradient of one component or the component itself. These conditions improve some other one component regularity results, e.g., in [J. Neustupa, A. Novotný and P. Penel, Topics in mathematical fluid mechanics.

Mat. 10, 163–183 (2002; Zbl 1050.35073) and Applied nonlinear analysis. In honor of the 70th birthday of Professor Jindrich Nečas. New York, NY: Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, 391–402 (1999; Zbl 0953.35113)].
