On the role of helicity in the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations

View File

By introducing an helical-decimated version of the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations (dNS) we show that all flows in nature posses a subset of triadic interactions leading to a split cascade regime, with energy going toward large scales and helicity toward small scales even in a fully periodic and isotropic statistical ensemble [1, 2]. Results concerning the statisical properties of the velocity field in both the direct-helicity and the inverse-energy regimes are studied. Finally, global (for all times and for all intial data) existence, uniqueness and continuos dependence on the initial data of solutions for such a model are rigorously proved.
