We study the partial regularity of suitable weak solutions to the three dimensional incompressible Navier–Stokes equations. There have been several attempts to refine the Caffarelli–Kohn–Nirenberg criterion (1982). We present an improved version of the CKN criterion with a direct method, which also provides the quantitative relation in Seregin’s criterion (2007).
