Abstract

We exhibit a regularity condition concerning the pressure gradient for the Navier-Stokes equations in a special class. It is shown that if the pressure gradient belongs to L 2 / (2 r) ( ( 0 , T ) ; ( H ˙ r ( 3 ) H ˙ r ( 3 ) ) ) , where ( H ˙ r ( 3 ) H ˙ r ( 3 ) ) is the multipliers between Sobolev spaces whose definition is given later for 0 < r < 1 , then the Leray-Hopf weak solution to the Navier-Stokes equations is actually regular.
