Abstract:  Consider the Cauchy problem of incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in R^3 with uniformly locally square integrable initial data. If the square integral of the initial datum on a ball vanishes as the ball goes to infinity, the existence of a time-global weak solution has been known. 
However, such data do not include constants, and the only known global solutions for non-decaying data are either for perturbations of constants, or when the velocity gradients are in Lp with finite p. In this talk, I will outline how to construct global weak solutions, first for non-decaying initial data whose local oscillations decay, no matter how slowly, second for initial data whose uniform local square integral grows in scale under a certain rate.

These are joint work with Kwon and Bradshaw, respectively.
