Abstract: The authors prove that the maximum norm of the vorticity controls the breakdown of smooth solutions of the 3D Euler equations. In other words, if a solution of the Euler equations is initially smooth and loses its regularity at some later time, then the maximum vorticity necessarily grows without bound as the critical time approaches; equivalently, if the vorticity remains bounded, a smooth solution persists. © 1984 SpringerVerlag.
