**Title**: Nonuniqueness of solutions to the Euler equations with integrable vorticity

**Abstract**: Yudovich established the well-posedness of the two-dimensional incompressible Euler equations for solutions with bounded vorticity. DiPerna and Majda proved the existence of weak solutions with vorticity in L^p ( p > 1). A celebrated open question is whether the uniqueness result can be generalized to solutions with L^p vorticity. In this talk, we resolve this question in negative for some p > 1. To prove nonuniqueness, we devise a new convex integration scheme that employs non-periodic, spatially-anisotropic perturbations, an idea that was inspired by our recent work on the transport equation. To construct the perturbation, we introduce a new family of building blocks based on the Lamb-Chaplygin dipole. This is a joint work with Elia Bruè and Maria Colombo.

**Title**: BKL bounces outside homogeneity

**Abstract**: In the latter half of the 20th century, physicists Belinski, Khalatnikov and Lifshitz (BKL) proposed a general ansatz for solutions to the Einstein equations possessing a (spacelike) singularity. They suggest that, near the singularity, the evolution of the spacetime geometry at different spatial points decouples and is well-approximated by a system of autonomous nonlinear ODEs, and further that general orbits of these ODEs resemble a (chaotic) cascade of heteroclinic orbits called “BKL bounces”. In this talk, we present recent work verifying the validity of BKL’s heuristics in a large class of symmetric, but spatially inhomogeneous, spacetimes which exhibit (up to one) BKL bounce on causal curves reaching the singularity. In particular, we prove AVTD behavior (i.e. decoupling) even in the presence of inhomogeneous BKL bounces. The proof uses nonlinear ODE analysis coupled to hyperbolic energy estimates, and one hopes our methods may be applied more generally.

**Title**: Quantified decoupling estimates and applications

**Abstract**: In 2004 Bourgain proved a qualitative trilinear moment inequality for solutions to the Schrödinger equation on the circle and raised the question for quantitative estimates. Here we show quantitative estimates. The proof combines decoupling iterations with semi-classical Strichartz estimates. Related arguments allow us to extend Bourgain’s $L^2$-well-posedness result for the periodic KP-II equation to initial data with negative Sobolev regularity. One key ingredient are $L^4$-Strichartz estimates, which follow from a novel decoupling inequality due to Guth-Maldague-Oh. The latter part of the talk is based on joint work with Sebastian Herr and Nikolay Tzvetkov.

**Title**: Strong Onsager conjecture

**Abstract**: Smooth solutions to the incompressible 3D Euler equations conserve kinetic energy in every local region of a periodic spatial domain. In particular, the total kinetic energy remains conserved. When the regularity of an Euler flow falls below a certain threshold, a violation of total kinetic energy conservation has been predicted due to anomalous dissipation in turbulence, leading to Onsager’s theorem. Subsequently, the $L^3$-based strong Onsager conjecture has been proposed to reflect the intermittent nature of turbulence and the local evolution of kinetic energy. This conjecture states the existence of Euler flows with regularity below the threshold of $B^{1/3}_{3,\infty}$ which not only dissipate total kinetic energy but also exhibit intermittency and satisfy the local energy inequality. In this talk, I will discuss the resolution of this conjecture based on recent collaboration with Matthew Novack and Vikram Giri.

**Title: **Polynomial decay in time for the Klein-Gordon equation on a Schwarzschild black hole

**Abstract: **It is expected that the Klein-Gordon equation on a Schwarzschild black hole behaves very differently from the wave equation at late-time, due to the presence of stable (timelike) trapping. We present our recent work demonstrating that despite the presence of stable timelike trapping on the Schwarzschild black hole, solutions to the Klein-Gordon equation with strongly localized initial data nevertheless decay polynomially in time. We will also explain how the proof uses, at a crucial step, results from analytic number theory related to the Riemann zeta function.

Joint works with Federico Pasqualotto and Yakov Shlapentokh-Rothman.

**Title: **Opportunities for the SQG equation

**Abstract:**We review various attempts in the proof of singularity formation and their limitations for the inviscid surface quasi-geostrophic (SQG) equation. The key difficulty can be summarized as (unexpected) cancellation and regularizing structure of the nonlinearity. Then we discuss remaining opportunities for the proof of singularity formation, in the class of relatively low regularity data.

**Title:** Asymptotic stability of the sine-Gordon kinks under perturbations in weighted Sobolev norms

**Abstract:** I will present a joint work with Herbert Koch on the asymptotic stability of the sine-Gordon kinks under small perturbations in weighted Sobolev norms. Our main tool is the Bäcklund transform which reduces the study of the asymptotic stability of the kinks to the study of the asymptotic decay of solutions near zero. I will also compare our work with some previous work on the asymptotic stability of the sine-Gordon kinks.

**Title:** Twisting in Hamiltonian flows and perfect fluids

**Abstract:** We will discuss a recent result joint with In-Jee Jeong and Theo Drivas. We prove that twisting in Hamiltonian flows on annular domains, which can be quantified by the differential winding of particles around the center of the domain, is stable to general perturbations. In fact, we prove the all-time stability of the lifted dynamics in an L2 sense (though single particle paths are generically unstable). These stability facts are used to establish several results related to the long-time behavior of inviscid fluid flows.

**Title:** Semiclassical quantization conditions for strained moiré lattices.

**Abstract:** When mechanical strain is applied to bilayer graphene in a certain way, an essentially one-dimensional moiré pattern can be seen. I will discuss a model for such systems and explain that it has approximately flat bands when the strain is very weak. The approximately flat bands correspond to approximate eigenvalues of infinite multiplicity, and they are obtained by generalizing the Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization condition for scalar symbols at a potential well to matrix-valued symbols with eigenvalues that coalesce precisely at the bottom of the well. The talk is based on joint work with Simon Becker.

**Title: **Stable undular bores: rigorous analysis and validated numerics

**Abstract:** I will discuss the ‘global’ nonlinear asymptotic stability of the traveling front solutions to the Korteweg-de Vries–Burgers equation, and other dispersive-dissipative perturbations of the Burgers equation. Earlier works made strong use of the monotonicity of the profile, for relatively weak dispersion effects. We exploit the modulation of the translation parameter, establishing a new stability criterion that does not require monotonicity. Instead, a certain Schrodinger operator in one dimension must have exactly one negative eigenvalue, so that a rank-one perturbation of the operator can be made positive definite. Counting the number of bound states of the Schrodinger equation, we find a sufficient condition in terms of the ’width’ of a front. We analytically verify that our stability criterion is met for an open set in the parameter regime including all monotone fronts. Our numerical experiments, revealing more stable fronts, suggest a computer-assisted proof. Joint with Blake Barker, Jared Bronski, and Zhao Yang.
