Harald Bohr Lecture and Danish Mathematical Society Abel Prize Lecture: Yakov G. Sinai

Title: Complex-Valued Solutions of the 3-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations

Speaker: Yakov G. Sinai (Professor, Department of Mathematics, Princeton University)

Abstract:  In this lecture, I shall discuss the results which were obtained by C. Boldrighini (Rome), Dong Li (Hong Kong), A. Makhalov (Arizona), and myself.  We all believe that there are many phenomena in nature which require solutions of Navier-Stokes systems with singularities.  The analysis of these cases requires the renormalization group method, which is so popular in theoretical and mathematical physics.  Typical examples are tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.  In some cases, the meaning of the Navier-Stokes systems is not so clear, because of singularities.

Cakes, tea and coffee are served in front of the Lundbeck auditorium from 14.45.
