Title: Opportunities for the SQG equation

Abstract:We review various attempts in the proof of singularity formation and their limitations for the inviscid surface quasi-geostrophic (SQG) equation. The key difficulty can be summarized as (unexpected) cancellation and regularizing structure of the nonlinearity. Then we discuss remaining opportunities for the proof of singularity formation, in the class of relatively low regularity data.
