Instability of finite time blow-ups for incompressible Euler Vasseur, Alexis


In this talk, we will discuss the interaction between the stability, and the propagation of regularity, for solutions to the incompressible 3D Euler equation. It is still unknown whether a solution with smooth initial data can develop a singularity in finite time. We will explain why the prediction of such a blow-up, via direct numerical experiments, is so difficult. We will describe how, in such a scenario, the solution becomes unstable as time approaches the blow-up time. The method use the relation between the vorticity of the solution, and the bi-characteristic amplitude solutions, which describe the evolution of the linearized Euler equation at high frequency. In the axisymmetric case, we can also study the instability of blow-up profiles. </p>
