Lower bound on the blow-up rate of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations in H^{5/2}

Under assumption that $T^{\ast}$ is the maximal time of existence of smooth solution of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations in the Sobolev space $H^{s}$, we establish lower bounds for the blow-up rate of the type$\ \left( T^{\ast }-t\right) ^{-\varphi\left( n\right) }$, where $n$ is a natural number independent of $s$ and $\varphi$ is a linear function. Using this new type in the 3D Navier-Stokes equations in the $H^{5/2}$, both on the whole space and in the periodic case, we give an answer to a question left open by James et al (2012, J... Math. Phys.). We also prove optimal lower bounds for the blow-up rate in $\dot{H}^{3/2}$ and in $H^{1}$. read more
