We establish Gevrey class regularity of solutions to dissipative equations. The main tools are the Kato-Ponce inequality for Gevrey estimates in Sobolev spaces and the Gevrey estimates in Besov spaces using the paraproduct decomposition. As an application, we obtain temporal decay of solutions for a large class of equations including the Navier-Stokes equations, the subcritical quasi-geostrophic equations.
