We prove Li-Yau type lower bounds for the eigenvalues of the Stokes operator and give applications to the attractors of the Navier-Stokes equations. 


We prove Berezin-Li-Yau-type lower bounds with additional term for the eigenvalues of the Stokes operator and improve the previously known estimates for the Laplace operator. Generalizations to

Lower bounds for sums of eigenvalues of elliptic operators and systems

Two-term lower bounds of Berzin-Li-Yau type are obtained for the sums of eigenvalues of elliptic operators and systems with constant coefficients and Dirichlet boundary conditions. The polyharmonic

The sharp estimates of eigenvalues of Polyharmonic operator and higher order Stokes operator

In this paper, we establish some lower bounds for the sums of eigenvalues of the polyharmonic operator and higher order Stokes operator, which are sharper than the recent results in \cite{CSWZ13,

Upper bounds for the attractor dimension of damped Navier-Stokes equations in $\mathbb R^2$

We consider finite energy solutions for the damped and driven two-dimensional Navier--Stokes equations in the plane and show that the corresponding dynamical system possesses a global attractor. We

On the Convergence Rate of Spectral Approximations for the Equations of Nonhomogeneous Incompressible Fluids

Abstract In this paper, we are concerned about the convergence rates of spectral semi-Galerkin methods to solve the equations describing the motion of a nonhomogeneous viscous incompressible fluid.

Applications of the Lieb--Thirring and other bounds for orthonormal systems in mathematical hydrodynamics

We discuss the estimates for the L-norms of systems of functions that are orthonormal in L and H, respectively, and their essential role in deriving good or even optimal bounds for the dimension of

On the convergence of spectral approximations for the heat convection equations

In this paper, we focus on the convergence rate of solutions of spectral Galerkin approximations for the heat convection equations on a bounded domain. Estimates in $$H^2$$H2-norm for velocity and

On the Convergence of Galerkin Spectral Methods for a Bioconvective Flow

Convergence rates of the spectral Galerkin method are obtained for a system consisting of the Navier-Stokes equation coupled with a linear convection-diffusion equation modeling the concentration of

New bounds on the Lieb-Thirring constants

Abstract.Improved estimates on the constants Lγ,d, for 1/2<γ<3/2, d∈N, in the inequalities for the eigenvalue moments of Schrödinger operators are established.

Lieb-Thirring integral inequalities and their applications to attractors of the Navier-Stokes equations

Integral inequalities of Lieb-Thirring type and their generalizations are proved. All the corresponding constants are given in explicit form. Special attention is devoted to applications to the

Dirichlet and Neumann Eigenvalue Problems on Domains in Euclidean Spaces

Abstract We obtain here some inequalities for the eigenvalues of Dirichlet and Neumann value problems for general classes of operators (or system of operators) acting in L 2 ( Ω ) (or L 2 ( Ω ,  C m

Lieb-Thirring inequalities with improved constants

Following Eden and Foias we obtain a matrix version of a generalised Sobolev inequality in one-dimension. This allows us to improve on the known estimates of best constants in Lieb-Thirring


The global attractor for the 2D Navier-Stokes flow on some unbounded domains

On the fractal dimension of invariant sets; applications to Navier-Stokes equations.

A semigroup $S_t$ of continuous operators in a Hilbert space $H$ is considered. It is shown that the fractal dimension of a compact strictly invariant set $X$ ($X\subset H, S_tX=X$) admits the

Infinite dimensional dynamical systems

Abstract : An approach is outlined for the discussion of the qualitative theory of infinite dimensional dynamical systems. Retarded functional differential equations are used to illustrate the

Navier-Stokes equations

A criterion is given for the convergence of numerical solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations in two dimensions under steady conditions. The criterion applies to all cases, of steady viscous flow in

On characteristic exponents in turbulence

Ruelle has found upper bounds to the magnitude and to the number of non-negative characteristic exponents for the Navier-Stokes flow of an incompressible fluid in a domain Θ. The latter is
