Study of the 3D Navier-Stokes equations in a rotational framework: existence and uniqueness of mild solutions. My studies focus on the analysis of the regularity of initial data that one need to obtain global well posedness for the Navier-Stokes-Coriolis problem in the three dimensional case. So far Ḣ¹/² regularity is known to be sufficient to obtain global solutions: in my thesis I want to prove a similar result in the L³ case and then I will try to generalize to less regular function spaces.
