Optimal well-posedness for the inhomogeneous incompressible Navier–Stokes system with general viscosity

Cosmin Burtea

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 2, 439–479

In this paper we obtain new well-posedness results concerning a linear inhomogeneous Stokes-like system. These results are used to establish local well-posedness in the critical spaces for initial density ρ0 and velocity u0 such that ρ0 ρ p,13p(3), u0 p,13p1(3), p (6 5,4) for the inhomogeneous incompressible Navier–Stokes system with variable viscosity. To the best of our knowledge, regarding the 3-dimensional case, this is the first result in a truly critical framework for which one does not assume any smallness condition on the density.
