We prove that there are stationary solutions to the 2D incompressible free boundary Euler equations with two fluids, possibly with a small gravity constant, that feature a splash singularity. More precisely, in the solutions we construct the interface is a $$\mathcal {C}^{2,\alpha }$$ C 2 , α  smooth curve that intersects itself at one point, and the vorticity density on the interface is of class  $$\mathcal {C}^\alpha $$ C α . The proof consists in perturbing Crapper’s family of formal… Expand
Workshop: Mathematical Aspects of Hydrodynamics Table of Contents
The workshop dealt with the partial differential equations that describe fluid motion and related topics. These topics included both inviscid and viscous fluids in two and three dimensions. SomeExpand
Existence of gravity-capillary Crapper waves with concentrated vorticity
The aim of this paper is to prove the existence of gravity-capillary Crapper waves with the presence of vorticity. In particular, we consider a concentrated vorticity: point vortex and vortex patch.Expand


A Liouville Theorem for the Euler Equations in the Plane
This paper is concerned with qualitative properties of bounded steady flows of an ideal incompressible fluid with no stagnation point in the two-dimensional plane $${\mathbb{R}^2}$$R2. We show thatExpand
On the Finite-Time Splash and Splat Singularities for the 3-D Free-Surface Euler Equations
We prove that the 3-D free-surface incompressible Euler equations with regular initial geometries and velocity fields have solutions which can form a finite-time “splash” (or “splat”) singularityExpand
On the Impossibility of Finite-Time Splash Singularities for Vortex Sheets
In fluid dynamics, an interface splash singularity occurs when a locally smooth interface self-intersects in finite time. By means of elementary arguments, we prove that such a singularity cannotExpand
Existence of knotted vortex tubes in steady Euler flows
We prove the existence of knotted and linked thin vortex tubes for steady solutions to the incompressible Euler equation in $${\mathbb{R}^{3}}$$R3. More precisely, given a finite collection ofExpand
Local Structure of The Set of Steady-State Solutions to The 2d Incompressible Euler Equations
It is well known that the incompressible Euler equations can be formulated in a very geometric language. The geometric structures provide very valuable insights into the properties of the solutions.Expand
The long-time motion of vortex sheets with surface tension
We study numerically the simplest model of two incompressible, immiscible fluids shearing past one another. The fluids are two-dimensional, inviscid, irrotational, density matched, and separated by aExpand
Knots and links in steady solutions of the Euler equation
Given any possibly unbounded, locally finite link, we show that there exists a smooth diffeomorphism transforming this link into a set of stream (or vortex) lines of a vector field that solves theExpand
Weak Solutions to the Stationary Incompressible Euler Equations
We consider weak stationary solutions to the incompressible Euler equations and show that the analogue of the $h$-principle obtained by the second author in joint work with C. De Lellis forExpand
On the absence of splash singularities in the case of two-fluid interfaces
We show that "splash" singularities cannot develop in the case of locally smooth solutions of the two-fluid interface in two dimensions. More precisely, we show that the scenario of formation ofExpand
