Local well-posedness of free surface problems for the Navier-Stokes equations in a general domain

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we prove the local well-posedness of the free boundary problems of Navier-Stokes equations in a general domain $\Omega\subset\mathbb{R}^N$ ($N \geq 2$). The velocity field is obtained in the maximal regularity class $W^{2,1}_{q,p}(\Omega\times(0, T)) = L_p((0, T), W^2_q(\Omega)^N) \cap W^1_p((0, T), L_q(\Omega)^N)$ ($2 < p < \infty$ and $N < q < \infty$) for any initial data satisfying certain compatibility conditions. The assumption of the domain $\Omega$ is the unique existence of solutions to the weak Dirichlet-Neumann problem as well as some uniformity of covering of the closure of $\Omega$. A bounded domain, a perturbed half space, and a perturbed layer satisfy the conditions for the domain, and therefore drop problems and ocean problems are treated in the uniform manner. Our method is based on the maximal $L_p$-$L_q$ regularity theorem of a linearized problem in a general domain.
