In this talk we will give a very elementary explanation of issues associated with the unique global solvability of three dimensional Navier-Stokes equation and then discuss various modifications of the classical system for which the unique solvability is resolved. We then discuss some of the fascinating issues associated with the stochastic Navier-Stokes equations such as Gaussian & Levy Noise, large deviations and invariant measures.
