The talk will be divided in two parts: In the first part I will talk about deterministic and stochastic Navier-Stokes equations with a constraint on the L 2 energy of the solution. I will speak about the existence and the uniqueness of local strong solutions and the existence of a global solutions for the constrained 2D Navier-Stokes equations. So far we have been able to show the latter only on the torus and on the whole Euclidean space.

In the second part of the talk I will focus on the tamed 3D Navier-Stokes equations which was introduced by Röckner and Zhang [2, 3]. They proved the existence of a unique strong solution to a stochastic tamed 3D Navier-Stokes equation in the whole space and for the periodic boundary conditions case, using a result from Stroock and Varadhan [4]. We have found an alternative self contained approach based on a different approximation scheme and Skorohod-Jakubowski Theorem [1]. We also proved the existence of invariant measures in the whole space for damped equations.
