The Navier Stokes equation is a mathematical model that describes (in a very coarse way) the flow of a viscous fluid in a given container or through a given configuration. It is nowadays used systematically as one of the components in large numerical simulations of complex phenomena. Nevertheless, the understanding of its properties is incomplete and a big scentific challenge.
