Title:Anomalous energy dissipation and intermittency in ideal fluids
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Roman Shvydkoy, UI Chicago
Abstract:
A long standing hypothesis of Onsager states that the minimal regularity of a velocity field of an ideal fluids that guarantees energy conservation is Holder-1/3. He also conjectures that there should exist a weak solution of regularity 1/3 that dissipates energy. In this talk we will given on overview of the current state of the Onsager conjecture and draw connections to the Kolmogorov theory of turbulence and intermittency.
