### Strong pathwise solutions of the stochastic Navier-Stokes system

#### Abstract

We consider the stochastic Navier-Stokes equations forced by a multiplicative white noise on a bounded domain in space dimensions two and three. We establish the local existence and uniqueness of strong or pathwise solutions when the initial data takes values in $H^1$. In the two-dimensional case, we show that these solutions exist for all time. The proof is based on finite-dimensional approximations, decomposition into high and low modes and pairwise comparison techniques.
