The most important result stated in this paper is a theorem on the existence of global solutions for the Navier-Stokes equations in $\mathbb R^n$ when the initial velocity belongs to the space weak $L^n(\mathbb R^n)$ with a sufficiently small norm. Furthermore, this fact leads us to obtain self-similar solutions if the initial velocity is, besides, an homogeneous function of degree -1. Partial uniqueness is also discussed.
