Abstract:

The inviscid two dimensional surface quasi-geostrophic (SQG) equations are an active scalar equation which models frontogenisis in the atmosphere. This PDE has attracted attention as solutions to it have similarities in behavior to solutions of the three dimensional Euler equations. In this talk, we will survey some known results for the inviscid SQG equations. Then, we will cover Resnick's proof of the existence of L^2 weak solutions on the torus.
