Abstract

We show a series of works of some regularity results on the incompressible Navier-Stokes equation in dimension three. Using the blow-up method, we estimate the higher regularity in the Lorentz norm for smooth solutions to the Navier-Stokes equation. In particular, we show a second derivative estimate for suitable weak solutions, which improves the currently known regularity. We construct a maximal function associated with geometric objects that we call skewed cylinders, appearing in inviscid flows like the Eulerian cylinders around the Lagrangian trajectories. We also apply the blow-up method to estimate the boundary vorticity, which enables us to achieve an unconditional control of the layer separation of Leray-Hopf solutions from a steady shear flow in a finite periodic channel.
