We formulate two results on controllability properties of the 3D Navier–Stokes (NS) system. They concern the approximate controllability and exact controllability in finite-dimensional projections of the problem in question. As a consequence, we obtain the existence of a strong solution of the Cauchy problem for the 3D NS system with an arbitrary initial function and a large class of right-hand sides. We also discuss some qualitative properties of admissible weak solutions for randomly forced NS...

We solve an optimal cost problem for a stochastic Navier-Stokes equation in space dimension 2 by proving existence and uniqueness of a smooth solution of the corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation.

In this article we consider local solutions for stochastic Navier Stokes equations, based on the approach of Von Wahl, for the deterministic case. We present several approaches of the concept, depending on the smoothness available. When smoothness is available, we can in someway reduce the stochastic equation to a deterministic one with a random parameter. In the general case, we mimic the concept of local solution for stochastic differential equations.

The classical result on singularities for the 3D Navier-Stokes equations says that the $1$-dimensional Hausdorff measure of the set of singular points is zero. For a stochastic version of the equation, new results are proved. For statistically stationary solutions, at any given time $t$, with probability one the set of singular points is empty. The same result is true for a.e. initial condition with respect to a measure related to the stationary solution, and if the noise is sufficiently non degenerate...

We consider a stochastic system of $N$ particles, usually called vortices in that setting, approximating the 2D Navier-Stokes equation written in vorticity. Assuming that the initial distribution of the position and circulation of the vortices has finite (partial) entropy and a finite moment of positive order, we show that the empirical measure of the particle system converges in law to the unique (under suitable a priori estimates) solution of the 2D Navier-Stokes equation. We actually prove a slightly...

This work is devoted to the concept of statistical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations, proposed as a rigorous mathematical object to address the fundamental concept of ensemble average used in the study of the conventional theory of fully developed turbulence. Two types of statistical solutions have been proposed in the 1970’s, one by Foias and Prodi and the other one by Vishik and Fursikov. In this article, a new, intermediate type of statistical solution is introduced and studied. This solution...

In questa nota, si presentano risultati di esistenza e di unicità di misure invarianti per l'equazione di Navier-Stokes che governa il moto di un fluido viscoso incomprimibile omogeneo in un dominio bidimensionale soggetto a una forzante che ha due componenti: una deterministica e una di tipo rumore bianco nella variabile temporale.

Some rigorous results connected with the conventional statistical theory of turbulence in both the two- and three-dimensional cases are discussed. Such results are based on the concept of stationary statistical solution, related to the notion of ensemble average for turbulence in statistical equilibrium, and concern, in particular, the mean kinetic energy and enstrophy fluxes and their corresponding cascades. Some of the results are developed here in the case of nonsmooth boundaries and a less regular...

The reliable and effective assimilation of measurements and numerical simulations in engineering applications involving computational fluid dynamics is an emerging problem as soon as new devices provide more data. In this paper we are mainly driven by hemodynamics applications, a field where the progressive increment of measures and numerical tools makes this problem particularly up-to-date. We adopt a Bayesian approach to the inclusion of noisy data in the incompressible steady Navier-Stokes equations...
