I will talk about a probabilistic cascade structure that can be naturally associated with certain partial differential equations and how it can be used to study well-posedness questions.

In the context of the still unsolved uniqueness problem for the 3D Navier-Stokes equations, our aim will be to see how the explosion properties of such cascades help establish a connection between the uniqueness of symmetry-preserving (self-similar) solutions and the uniqueness of the general problem.

Based on the joint work with N. Michalowski, E. Thomann, and E. Waymire.
