Speaker: Prof Hideo KOZONO, Mathematical Institute, Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan Date: December 3, 2-3pm, Carslaw 373 Title: Well-posedness of the Navier-Stokes equations Abstract: The problem on well-posedness of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations is one of the most important questions in mathematics such that it was selected as that of seven millennium problems proposed by the Clay Mathematical Institute in 2000. Introducing a pioneer work established by Leray more than seventy years ago, we will discuss recent results on the Navier-Stokes equations. In particular, we will see that the technique from the functional analysis and the harmonic analysis plays an important role in investigations. We will also consider a direction of the research in the future. We will take the speaker out to lunch. Please join us near the lifts on Level 5 at 12:30pm to leave for lunch.
