Singularity formation in incompressible fluids
Tarek Elgindi, Department of Mathematics, UC San Diego,

UCLA, MS 6627

We will discuss recent results on singularity formation for solutions to the incompressible Euler equation in various settings. We will discuss in some detail a construction of self-similar blow-up for C^{1,a} solutions to the 3D Euler equation as well as a proof of stability that yields finite-energy local self-similar blow-up. Some of the results are joint with I. Jeong, T. Ghoul, and N. Masmoudi.
