Pierre Gilles Lemarie-Rieusset is a professor at the University of Evry Val d'Essonne. Dr. Lemarie-Rieusset has constructed many widely used bases, such as the Meyer-Lemarie wavelet basis and the Battle-Lemarie spline wavelet basis. His current research focuses on the application of harmonic analysis to the study of nonlinear PDEs in fluid mechanics. He is the author or coauthor of several books, including Recent Developments in the Navier-Stokes Problem.
This monograph addresses a difficult question in the mathematical theory of a viscous incompressible fluid: global well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for the Navier-Stokes equations. ... The author is an outstanding expert in harmonic analysis who has made important contributions. The book contains rigorous proofs of a number of the latest results in the field. I strongly recommend the book to postgraduate students and researchers working on challenging problems of harmonic analysis and mathematical theory of Navier-Stokes equations. -Gregory Seregin, St Hildas College, Oxford University This is a great book on the mathematical aspects of the fundamental equations of hydrodynamics, the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. It covers many important topics and recent results and gives the reader a very good idea about where the theory stands at present. The book contains an excellent overview of the history, a great modern exposition of many important classical theorems, and an outstanding presentation of a number of very recent results from the frontiers of research on the subject. The writing is flawless, the clarity of the presentation is exceptional, and the author's choice of the topics is outstanding. I recommend the book very highly to anybody interested in the mathematics surrounding the PDEs of hydrodynamics, including the famous Navier-Stokes regularity problem. The book is perhaps even better than the author's first book on the Navier-Stokes theory published about 10 years ago, which is regularly used by many mathematicians. -Vladimir Sverak, University of Minnesota This book by Lemarie-Rieusset reports on recent fundamental progress toward understanding the existence, regularity, and stability of solutions to Navier-Stokes equations. This is a must-have book for all researchers working in fluid dynamics equations, and it will become a reference in the field. The very clear and self-contained presentation of this complex and
