On the geometry of solutions of the Quasi-geostrophic equation
D. Cordoba (U. Chicago)
We study solutions of the 2D Quasi-geostrophic equation involving a simple hyperbolic saddle. There is a naturally associated notion of simple hyperbolic saddle breakdown. It is proved that such a breakdown cannot occur in finite time. At large time, these solutions may grow at most at a quadruple-exponential rate.
