A variational approach to the Navier-Stokes equations. (English. French) Zbl 1242.49063
Summary: We propose a time discretization of the Navier–Stokes equations inspired by the theory of gradient flows. This discretization produces Leray/Hopf solutions in any dimension and suitable solutions in dimension 3. We also show that in dimension 3 and for initial data in \(H^{1}\), the scheme converges to strong solutions in some interval [0,T) and, if the data satisfy the classical smallness condition, it produces the smooth solution in [\(0,\infty \)).
