Global Stability of Systems Related to the Navier-Stokes Equations.
Alexander Rauh

A generalized Lyapunov method is outlined which predicts global stability of a broad class of dissipative dynamical systems. The method is applied to the complex Lorenz model and to the Navier--Stokes equations. In both cases one finds compact domains in phase space which contain the omega-sets of all trajectories, in particular the fixed points, limit cycles, and strange attractors.
