Global regularity results for the 2D Boussinesq equations with vertical dissipation. (English) Zbl 1232.35111
Authors’ abstract: This paper furthers the study of the authors [J. Differ. Equations 249, No. 5, 1078–1088 (2010; Zbl 1193.35144)] on the global regularity issue concerning the 2D Boussinesq equations with vertical dissipation and vertical thermal diffusion. It is shown here that the vertical velocity \(v\) of any classical solution in the Lebesgue space \(L^q\) with \(2\leq q<\infty\) is bounded by \(C_1q\) for \(C_1\) independent of \(q\). This bound significantly improves the previous exponential bound. In addition, we prove that, if \(v\) satisfies \[ \int^T_0 \sup_{q\geq 2} {\| v(\cdot,t)\|^2_{L^q}\over q}\,dt< \infty, \] then the associated solution of the 2D Boussinesq equations preserves its smoothness on \([0, T]\). In particular, \(|v|_{L^q}\leq C_2\sqrt{q}\) implies global regularity.
