Abstract:Fundamental mathematical issues concerning the
surface quasi-geostrophic (SQG) equation have recently
attracted the attention of many researchers and important
progress has been made. This talk focuses on the existence,
uniqueness and regularity of solutions to the SQG equation
and covers both the inviscid and dissipative cases. We will
summarize some existing work and report very recent
numerical and theoretical results.
