Abstract: The aim of this article is to present a rather unusual and partly heuristic application of the renormalization group (RG) theory to the Navier-Stokes equations with space periodic boundary conditions. We obtain in this way a new nonlinear renormalized equation with a nonlinear term which is invariant under the Stokes operator. Its relation to the Navier-Stokes equations is investigated for non-resonant domains.
