Abstract: We consider the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky (KS) equation in finite domains of the form $[-L,L]$. Our main result provides effective new estimates for higher Sobolev norms of the solutions in terms of powers of $L$ for the one-dimentional differentiated KS. We illustrate our method on a simpler model, namely the regularized Burger's equation. The underlying idea in this result is that a priori control of the $L^2$ norm is enough in order to conclude higher order regularity and in fact, it allows one to get good estimates on the high-frequency tails of the solution.
