Navier-Stokes system, degenerating domain, Galerkin method


Due to the fact that the Navier-Stokes equations are involved in the formulation of a large number of interesting problems that are important from an applied point of view, these equations have been the object of attention of mechanics, mathematicians and other scientists for several decades in a row. But despite this, many problems for the Navier-Stokes equation remain unexplored to this day. In this work, we are exploring the solvability of a boundary value problem for a two-dimensional Navier-Stokes system in a non-cylindrical degenerating domain, namely, in a cone with its vertex at the origin. Previously, we studied cases of the linearized Navier-Stokes system or non-degenerating cylindrical domains, so this work is a logical continuation of our previous research in this direction. To the above-mentioned degenerate domain we associate a family of non-degenerate truncated cones, which, in turn, are formed by a oneto-one transformation into cylindrical domains, where for the problem under consideration we established uniform a priori estimates with respect to changes in the index of the domains. Further, using a priori estimates and the Faedo-Galerkin method, we established the existence, uniqueness of solution in Sobolev classes, and its regularity as the smoothness of the given functions increases.
