Both numerical and experimental evidence suggests that solutions of the three-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations display a high degree of intermittency, which is manifest in spiky excursions away from averages in the vorticity field. This phenomenon may be intimately bound up with the enduring problem of regularity and is addressed by discussing two new conditional (& unusual) regularity assumptions.
