## Abstract

Leray's self-similar solution of the Navier-Stokes equations is defined by

u(x, t) = U(y)/2root(t* - t),

where y = x/root2sigma(t* - t), sigma > 0.

Consider the equation for U(y) in a smooth bounded domain D of R-3 with non-zero boundary condition:

-vDeltaU+sigmaU+sigmay(.)delU+U(.)delU+delP=0, y is an element of D,

del(.)U=0, y is an element of D,

U = 9(y), y E partial derivativeD.

We prove an existence theorem for the Dirichlet problem in Sobolev space W-1,W-2(D). This implies the local existence of a self-similar solution of the Navier-Stokes equations which blows up at t = t* with t(*) < +infinity, provided the function G(y) is permissible.
