In August, Radu Dascaliuc (PI) was awarded National Science Foundation grant DMS-1516487, “Collaborative research: Turbulent cascades and dissipation in the 3D Navier-Stokes model.” The main theme of the project is a rigorous study of various manifestations of turbulence in three-dimensional fluid flows modeled by the Navier-Stokes equations. This is considered both from the perspective of the mathematical theory of turbulence, and as a physical mechanism underlying possible blow-ups (singularities) of the solutions of the system. This is a three-year grant in the amount of $79,000.
