We will discuss some recent results on singularity formation for finite-energy strong solutions to the 2D Boussinesq and 3D Euler systems based on the analysis of scale-invariant solutions. The work consists of three parts: local well-posedness in critical spaces, the analysis of scale-invariant solutions (which belong to those spaces), and then a cut-off argument to ensure finite energy. This is a joint work with I. Jeong.
