Abstract:

Building upon the techniques introduced in [1], for any $\theta<\frac{1}{10}$ we construct periodic weak solutions of the incompressible Euler equations which dissipate the total kinetic energy and are H\"older-continuous with exponent $\theta$. A famous conjecture of Onsager states the existence of such dissipative solutions with any H\"older exponent $\theta<\frac{1}{3}$. Our theorem is the first result in this direction.
