Abstract:

The Lagrangian Averaged Navier Stokes (LANS) equations have

been introduced as surrogates for the Navier Stokes equations in the

simulation of turbulence in a periodic domain in R^3. In this talk I will provide some

of the motivation leading to these system of equations as well as results

obtained in collaboration with L Chen, R Guenther, S-C Kim and E Waymire on the rate

of convergence of solutions of the regularized equations to solutions of the

Navier-Stokes equations.
