#### Singular solutions of the binormal flow

**Speaker:**

**Date:**

**Synopsis:**

The binormal flow is a model for the dynamics of a vortex filament in a 3-D inviscid incompressible fluid. This flow is also related to the classical continuous Heisenberg model in ferromagnetism and to the 1-D cubic Schrödinger equation. In this lecture I will first talk about the state of the art of the binormal flow conjecture, as well as about mathematical methods and results for the binormal flow. Then I will introduce a class of solutions at the critical level of regularity that generate singularities in finite time and describe some of their properties. These results are joint work with Luis Vega.

**Notes:**

Talk will be online via Zoom.
