An exact solution for the Navier-Stokes?

  1. Jan 30, 2014 #1
    I understand the source means to say Mujtarbay Otelbayev has found a solution to Navier-Stokes equations. The only reference I've found is the article itself (in Russian), so I don't understand a word...

    Is this an existence statement, or a constructive way to obtain solutions?

    I believe the jury is still out on exactly what Dr. Otelbayev's solution represents and whether or not it qualifies for the Millennium Prize. Since the paper is 100+ pages and in Russian, it will probably take a bit of time to translate into other languages for the international community to fully appreciate its significance. It should be interesting to watch the progress of that effort though.
