Besov-weak-Herz spaces and global solutions for Navier–Stokes equations

Lucas C. F. Ferreira and Jhean E. Pérez-López

Vol. 296 (2018), No. 1, 57–77

We consider the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations (NS) in n for n 2. Global well-posedness is proved in critical Besov-weak-Herz spaces (BWH-spaces) that consist in Besov spaces based on weak-Herz spaces. These spaces are larger than some critical spaces considered in previous works for NS. For our purposes, we need to develop a basic theory for BWH-spaces containing properties and estimates such as heat semigroup estimates, embedding theorems, interpolation properties, among others. In particular, we prove a characterization of Besov-weak-Herz spaces as interpolation of Sobolev-weak-Herz ones, which is key in our arguments. Self-similarity and asymptotic behavior of solutions are also discussed. Our class of spaces and its properties developed here could also be employed to study other PDEs of elliptic, parabolic and conservation-law type.
