mathematical perspective

In this chapter we provide an introduction to the Navier–Stokes equations from a mainly mathematical

point of view in order to lay the proper groundwork for the numerical treatments to follow in subsequent

chapters. We begin with a very brief discussion of the equations, themselves, reserving details for later,

and we provide an outline of the history of the analysis of these equations. But we make no claim as

to completeness of this; the intent is merely to indicate the tremendous amount of work that has been

done. We follow this with basic functional analysis relating to the Navier–Stokes equations, including such

key ideas as “weak” and “strong” solutions. We then state, without proof, the main results concerning

existence, uniqueness and regularity of solutions, and we discuss these in the framework of the numerical

procedures that will be needed to actually produce solutions.
