Abstract
The putative singular set S in spacetime of a suitable weak solution u of the 3D Navier–Stokes equations has boxcounting dimension no greater than 5/3. This allows one to prove that almost all trajectories avoid S. Moreover, for each point x that does not belong to S, one can find a neighbourhood U of x such that the function u is continuous on U and space derivatives of u are bounded on every compact subset of U. It follows that almost all Lagrangian trajectories corresponding to u are C^{1} functions of time (Robinson & Sadowski, Nonlinearity 2009). We recall the main idea of the proof, give examples that clarify in what sense the uniqueness of trajectories is considered, and make some comments on how this result might be improved.
