Solving Numerically a System of Coupled Riccati ODEs for Incompressible Non-Stationary 3D Navier-Stokes Equations

Authors: Victor Christianto, Sergey Ershkov

In a recent paper, Ershkov derived a system of two coupled Riccati ODEs as solution of non-stationary incompressible 3D Navier-Stokes equations. Now in this paper, we solve these coupled Riccati ODEs using: a) Maxima and b) Mathematica 11 computer algebra packages. The result seems to deserve further investigation in particular in comparison with rigid body motion, which will be discussed elsewhere.
