Local Speaker: 

I will discuss a recent paper by P Constantin and V Vicol (arXiv:1109.4210) giving a new proof of existence of
smooth solutions of the Quasi-Geostrophic Equations. The proof is based on maximum principles satisfied
by nonlocal operators and the notion of Only Small Shocks introduced by the authors.
