Abstract

The regularity of 3D vortex patches, which are weak solutions to the three dimensional incompressible Euler system with discontinuous initial data, is studied. The key idea is to introduce a singular integral system formulation to 3D Euler systems. Existence and regularity of solutions of the singular integral system are established in general settings. As a result, striated regularity of uniform Hölder type for weak solutions ω (x, t) to 3D Euler system is established for a short time. Furthermore, it is shown that this regularity persists as long as the quantity |ω(·, t)|L∞ is integrable. In particular, global regularity of solutions for axisymmetric flows is established.
