Title: Construction of the Hodge-Neumann heat kernel, local Bernstein estimates, and Onsager’s conjecture in fluid dynamics.

Abstract: Most recently, in arXiv:1907.05360 [math.AP], we introduced the theory of heatable currents and proved Onsager’s conjecture on Riemannian manifolds with boundary, where the weak solution has $B_{3,1}^{\frac{1}{3}}$ spatial regularity. In this sequel, by applying techniques from geometric microlocal analysis to construct the Hodge-Neumann heat kernel, we obtain off-diagonal decay and local Bernstein estimates, and then use them to extend the result to the Besov space $\widehat{B}_{3,V}^{\frac{1}{3}}$, which generalizes both the space $\widehat{B}_{3,c(\mathbb{N})}^{1/3}$ from arXiv:1310.7947 [math.AP] and the space $\underline{B}_{3,\text{VMO}}^{1/3}$ from arXiv:1902.07120 [math.AP] — the best known function space where Onsager’s conjecture holds on flat backgrounds.
