Necessary and sufficient conditions for the fractional Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequalities and applications to Navier-Stokes and generalized Boson equations. (English) Zbl 1270.42026
The Gagliardo-Nirenberg (GN) inequality is a fundamental tool in the study of nonlinear partial differential equations. In this paper, the authors obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for the GN inequality in homogeneous Besov spaces and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces. As the first application, the authors show that the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations at finite blowup time \(T_m\) has concentration phenomena in the critical space \(L^3({\mathbb{R}}^3)\). As the second application, the authors consider the minimization problem for the variational problem \[ M_c = \inf \{ E(u): \|u_i\|_2^2 = c_i > 0, i = 1, \dots, L\} \] where \[ E(u) = \frac{1}{2} \|u \|_{{\dot{H}}_s}^2 - \int_{{\mathbb{R}}^{2n}} G(u(x)) V(x - y) G(u(y)) dx dy \] for \(u = (u_1, \dots, u_{L})\). The authors show that \(M_c\) admits a radial and radially decreasing minimizer under suitable assumptions an \(s, G\) and \(V\).
