Abstract

We improve results in reference [6] concerning the effect of the direction of the vorticity on the regularity of weak solutions to the 3D Navier--Stokes equations. In particular, we prove that, if the direction of the vorticity belongs to suitable Sobolev spaces, then there exists a unique smooth solution of the Cauchy problem for the Navier--Stokes equations.
